November 2017 - Your Move

Episode Description

In Eastern Europe, a child who shows skill on the chess board might be given rigorous training and, eventually, a government salary. But in Canada, potential grandmasters must fend for themselves, studying alone on their laptops.

Norma Wick reads Sasha Chapin’s profile of a young man who is trying to become Canada’s first truly great chess player. Chapin is the author of The Perfect Information Game, a forthcoming book about chess.
