Kasparov selects World Chess Challenge Team

Hello Everyone,

We all remember World No. 1 Carlsen becoming a fashion model for G-Star. On September 10, 2010, Carlsen will play against a world team (you can play too!) helped by three top GMs. They were selected by RAW World Chess Challenge ambassador Garry Kasparov and presented in another nice video by G-Star. Here is the video!

Part of the cooperation between G-Star and Magnus Carlsen is the RAW World Chess Challenge. which will be hosted in Cooper Star Hotel in New York City. Everyone in the world is invited to play Magnus Carlsen, the number one chess player in the world, together at once, live on the internet. Three GMs, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave from France, Hikaru Nakamura from the United States and Judit Polgar from Hungary, will suggest moves to the online registered public. The public can vote online for their favourite move to be played against Magnus.

You can enter the event here.

When asked about his thoughts on the RAW World Chess Challenge, Garry Kasparov says: “I am acting as the ambassador of this Challenge, because I am attracted by the unique character of the RAW World Chess Challenge. There isn’t any sport I know of that gives the entire world the opportunity to play the world’s best simultaneously. Magnus is one of the greatest talents ever. This game will be a true challenge for him. Let’s see who wins: he or the World.”

And, since we cannot have enough of Carlsen, here's another nice video!
