Mike's Pawn On September 10, 1995 Phish challenged its audience to a tour long game of chess, with a different audience member making a move onstage each set. The result: a tie. Last night, Mike Gordon once again played chess with the Phish faithful, this time online. Organized by the OhKeePa message board, a number of fans communally played Gordon at www.pogo.com. After a few strenuous typing sessions, Gordon proved victorious with a checkmate. The former Phish bassist's next scheduled appearance is April 20 at the sixth annual Jammy Awards.
