Search for More News

New Delhi, Nov 27: In a unique attempt early in his career, world's second youngest ever Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi will simultaneously play four blindfold chess matches here tomorrow.

This is a first instance in the country when a Grandmaster will be playing blindfold matches simultaneously against more than one opponent.

The 13-year-old Negi, with his eyes closed, will be pitted against city's four talents in the event to be held at the Russian Centre for Science Arts and Culture as a part of next month's Amity Grandmasters Challenge in which the Delhi prodigy will take on European Women's Champion Kateryna Lahno of Ukraine in matchplay tournament.

Negi will be told the moves his opponents make and he will reply to that by speaking aloud his own moves.

The event will be followed by another exhibition match where Negi will play against as many as 25 opponents simultaneously, albeit with his eyes open.

The blindfold chess has recently gained in popularity due to the annual Amber Blindfold and Rapid Chess tournament with Indian ace Viswanathan Anand being the reigning singles champion for the last two years.

Negi said he was confident of a good show.

'It will indeed be harder than the normal"
