RZA, GZA of Wu-Tang Clan to play Nate Hill and iamBrandon for charity with Hennessy

“I guess I remember it well because he had a black and red checkerboard, but the pieces were like clear plastic neon,” GZA tells The Washington Post in a video interview, who said he never forgot the lesson. “And they were weird colored, and they were caked in green. And he showed me the names of the pieces and how they moved.”

But those were just the basics. “I really started to play with Masta Killa,” said GZA.

RZA said he started playing chess at age 11, which surprises GZA because they grew up together at the Staten Island neighborhood of Park Hill. GZA said they spent a lot of time in recreation centers where they met to play “stickball, Wiffle ball, Skully, Monopoly, Parcheesi, Trouble.”

“There was everything but a chess board!” GZA said. “And it just struck me, wow we never played each other as children.”

Caesars bets $3.7 bln on William Hill takeover [Video]

Caesars Entertainment looks to be placing a big bet.

The U.S. casino operator says it’s in talks to buy UK bookmaker William Hill, in a deal valued at 3.7 billion dollars.

In a joint statement Monday (September 28) the pair said negotiations were at an advanced stage.

The pair already have a joint venture in the U.S., including William Hill outlets in casinos.

Now the new deal would give Caesars full control of that, up from the 20% stake it has now.

But there could be a rival player.

William Hill says it has also received a bid from buyout group Apollo Global Management.

But then fell right back to previous levels on Monday, suggesting investors are uncertain what price a deal could attract.

Meanwhile, Caesars is getting its stake together.

It’s raising new equity, and
