The Ultimate Blitz Challenge takes place in St Louis Thursday 28th and Friday 29th April 2016.

Even though it’s just blitz this is the toughest test Kasparov has had since his retirement. Kasparov did beat Maxime Vachier-Lagrave in a two game bltiz match in 2011 and he is known to play online still. Also Kasparov destroyed Nigel Short in a similar exhibition last year but this is a level above that. Whilst Kasparov cannot be said to be favourite it’s hard to believe he would have agreed to play unless he thought he’d be competitive. The event will not be FIDE rated. Play starts at 1pm local time, 9pm UK time and will consist of 6 3 game round robin sessions, 9 games a day.

A sakkozás legendás 13. világbajnoka, Garri Kaszparov 2005-ös visszavonulása óta csak szimultánokon, bemutató mérkőzéseken vett részt, illetve Anatolij Karpovval és Nigel Shortal játszott nosztalgia meccset. A hatfordulós viadalon 5-5 perc és 3-3 másodperc lesz a gondolkodási idő, a díjalap 50 ezer dollár, az első helyezett 20 ezret kap. Kaszparov már bejelentette, hogy a tornán megszerzett díjával a bakui sakkolimpián szereplő amerikai válogatottat támogatja majd.live212-1-150x150LIVE! – Élő játszma és videóközvetítéssel ..
