"Wicker Park Chess Tables Causing a Stir, Could Get Ripped Out"

Story at This is not the first time that chess tables have been targeted in the name of eliminating "undesirables."

Let's get rid of drug deals in the parks, but let's keep chess (and even dominoes) in the parks.

P.S.: Chess-friendly 1st Ward Alderman Proco Joe Moreno is on the case.

Weird. I didn't even know there were tables there. I'm pretty sure these tables aren't being used for chess on a regular basis.

Sadly, the ones in Logan Square (near the blue line stop there) are rarely used for chess as well.
