    Of America's Founding Fathers, do you know which of them played chess? MegaChess commissioned famed historical researcher and painter Maria Radnoti to find the answer. It turns out only three of them knew the game well and had a chess set; Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. As far as who would have played, Franklin and Jefferson were the best matched. Franklin was an enthusiastic player, and 3 years later, he would write the first chess article published in the US, "The Morals of Chess". Jefferson, an intellectual who could read the Greek Classics in Greek, had every chess book available in his time in the Monticello Library. But would they have left Washington out of a game? Their retired Commander-in-Chief? Not likely. And since Franklin enjoyed watching the game almost as much as playing it, he would have been happy to see if Washington, who had prevailed in past battles as the underdog, could beat Jefferson. The intellectual vs. the strategist. In that Franklin rails against kibitzers in his "Morals of Chess", Ms. Radnoti painted him with his mouth closed.
