GM Maurice Ashley playing
in Jamaica in 2007.
Maurice Ashley has taken a lengthy break from professional chess since 2003 and is slowly working his way back into playing shape. The Brooklyn-based Grandmaster told The Chess Drum last month that he was back! Since then he has played in three rapid tournaments at the prestigious Marshall Chess Club.
While the famous Grandmaster has been playing on the ICC, he hopes to work his way back into the form he had before he went on a self-imposed hiatus. He had just won the 2003 Foxwoods before embarking on a number of projects including his book, “Chess for Success.” He has also been working with a number of New York-based juniors. Stay tuned!
