Last week Eight Forty-Eight talked with the Chicago Blaze of the United States Chess League before they headed to the semi-finals of the post-season. The team won that match against Los Angeles and moved on to the finals to play the New York Knights.
With the Bears and Blackhawks in regular-season mode, those wanting some intense playoff action had to look elsewhere. How about the world of chess? The Chicago Blaze will play their semi-final match Monday against the Los Angles Vibe.
