Chicago NY

Working at a law firm, I am familiar with the expression "change of venue". It refers to a law suit being moved to a new jurisdiction, usually from one county or state to another.

But chess games, unlike law suits, should never change venue. Case in point: my game as White against future grandmaster Maurice Ashley, supposedly played in Chicago.

The only problem is, I've never been in the Windy City! Actually the contest took place in the last round of a weekend Swiss tournament at the Marshall Chess Club in New York City.
