Ah, the wonderful world of curiosities. This guy is (apparently) the Jamaican chess champion ... here playing against time in Brussels. 'Fast Chess' = 3min. All this so he can buy a ticket back to Miami and then Jamaica.

Did he win ?

I have never heard of fast chess. Does that mean that he has to win in under 3 minutes?

i'm surprised he didn't make his way to le greenwich where even magritte played chess!

natalie - three minute chess means each player has three minutes on their clock. the person whose clock runs out first loses (usually because they spend too much time thinking about their next move). you can see the jamaican's hand on the clock.

what's really weird is that both players seem to be playing black! where are the white pieces?
