This summer is all about competition. Last week, we introduced you to the real champions of the season in a teaser trailer for Village Print & Media’s brand new series, VPM Game Time, as part of our Summer 2016 Campaign. Today, you’re going to begin to see some of New York’s finest players in the pilot episode of the series.

In this first episode, you’ll meet one of Bryant Park’s finest chess players. Whether it’s on the boards, or fighting to get a seat at the park during lunchtime, or beating the line at Chik-fil-a, this guy understands just how insanely competitive New York City is at every hour of every day, and knows what it takes to keep up.
