Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Remember our post about two world chess champions in Tashkent - Viswanathan Anand and Rustam Kasimdzhanov?

Anand wins friendly match against Kasimdzhanov

From the sidelines of the same event we received the report of the simul played by the two champions. Vishy Anand won 12 games, drew 6 and lost 2 - to an 11-year-old Timur Igonin and a member of the women’s national team Hulkar Tahirjanova. What tough kids to hold their nerve against the world champion who was visibly exhausted. Here are videos from the event.

They are going to remember this for a 
long time: We beat Anand
You can find more details at the official website.
