X Chess
The first episode of the Xtreme Chess Championships is now live on youtube and I'm giving the first look to my CLO blog readers.


We had a great time premiering the episode at the Marshall Chess Club last Friday. The room was packed and we had a lot of special guests including two of the stars of X Chess, Shawn Martinez and Justus Williams.
