Chess grandmaster to discuss critical thinking at UofL lecture

Maurice Ashley, international chess grandmaster and ESPN commentator, will speak Sept. 18 at the University of Louisville.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 11, 2012) — Maurice Ashley, international chess grandmaster and ESPN commentator, will speak Sept. 18 at the University of Louisville about “Thinking Critically Three Moves Ahead.”

The talk will begin at 4 p.m. in Ballroom B of the University Club with a reception afterward. UofL’s Liberal Studies Project, College of Arts and Sciences and College of Business are sponsoring the free, public lecture.

Ashley is expected to talk about how the thinking techniques used in chess can help people analyze problems and make confident decisions.

He wrote the 2005 book, “Chess for Success: Using an Old Game to Build New Strengths in Children and Teens,” and has traveled internationally to advocate the game’s intellectual and character-building effects. Besides earning the game’s international grandmaster title in 1999, Ashley won several awards from the U.S. Chess Federation and has been a chess commentator for ESPN. He also developed a chess DVD and iPhone application.

Ashley also will participate in Louisville’s IdeaFestival Sept. 20 and a related Thrivals 5.0 session Sept. 19 at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.
