Garry Kasparov: With so many elite players, Saint Louis is no gangsta’s paradise!

Legendary grandmaster and former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov competes in the 2022 Champions Showdown Chess 9LX tournament in Saint Louis Chess Club. He suffered three losses during the Day 1 and bottoms the crosstable after three played rounds. After watching Day 1 games, Jamaican-American grandmaster and famous commentator Maurice Ashley tweeted that Kasparov would definitely be a top 20 player if he only focused on chess: “Watching Garry Kasparov play at the Saint Louis Chess Club, it’s clear that he would definitely be a top 20 player if he only focused on chess. Even out of form, he’s still a gangsta!“. Kasparov answered him in a style: “Very kind, Maurice. Unfortunately, chess is only a small part of my life these days and, with so many elite players here this week, Saint Louis is no gangsta’s paradise!“.
