The Queens Gambit
6

My conversation started as follows:

Steve: "Are you familiar with the Queens Gambit?"

TC: "Sure, I play it all the time."

Steve: "No, I meant the new 7 part series on Netflix about a young girl who's a chess prodigy."

TC: "Nope, haven't heard about it."

Steve: "Check it out, it just appeared on Netflix and it's an engrossing drama about the world of chess."

He then proceeded to show me step by step the moves involved in the Queens Gambit, a chess strategy. I asked a lot of questions about his love of chess and learned that he started to play at the age of seven. He regularly plays tournaments and is a champion. At the end of our conversation, I politely asked if I could take his photo.

Last, he carries with him both a red chess board and a blue one. In light of the upcoming election, he's using his blue board.
