Who is Jude Acers?
From his world chess table on Decatur St. in New Orleans’ French Quarter, Jude Acers commands his chess empire. Playing all who dare, his aggressive style comes at you like Hannibal harnessing a hurricane. His disarming grin and the inevitable thrusting handshake after the annihilation of your pieces reflects the life work of “the man in the red beret”… a belief that the passion for chess can universally lift all people to live better, more independent lives.
Chess comes easy to no one. Guided by a singular focus and high powered curiosity, Jude has propelled himself to super star status in the chess world. Since first learning to play as a child, he has honed his skills and elevated his tactics to become a World Chess Master, a Guinness World Record holder, and author of several books and articles. His tours and exhibitions have taken him around the world from big cities and small towns to prison complexes and middle schools while delighting and inspiring thousands who may not have considered chess exciting. He’ll play a stranger in a lonely bus depot on the way to a world class event in a major metro setting, always willing to share his philosophy of living a better life in today’s complex world by understanding the simplicity of the game of chess.
As they say in the Quarter… “Lassiez les bon temps rouler!”
