Storyline

Because Felix ticked off the doorman, he reveals to the building manager that Oscar's wife is no longer living there. Because the lease is in her name, Oscar's rent needs to be raised and he needs to pay some back rent. Oscar tries to come up with it by gambling but loses. Teddy brings his son so that Felix can teach him chess. And when Oscar sees how good he is, he asks Felix to go out and play chess for money. Felix says he hasn't played for some time but Oscar begs him and he goes out and makes the money Oscar needs. But he keeps on playing that it affects his relationship with Emily. She does some checking and discovers why he gave up playing chess. They try to help him deal with it. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
