Hula Hoop Chess

Richard Sugden

Jennifer Shahade is a Philadelphia based writer and gamesplayer. She is a two-time American Women's Chess Champion (2002, 2004). In the "Hulachess" video below she is playing with the Red pieces against choreographer and dancer Gabrielle Revlock playing with the White pieces.

"The moves were based on a game that I analyzed for Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess, from the 1924 Olympiad in Paris. Duchamp lost that game against the Romanian master Davidescu, partly because he missed a line leading to perpetual check."
