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

Hi everyone,

Chess great Gary Kasparov might have retired from mainstream chess but he continues to do fantastic stuff to promote the sport. His exhibition match with Maxim Vachier-Lagrave is one such event and was held today in the French city of Clichy. Here is the video with the key moments.

Kasparov beat Vachier-Lagrave 1.5-1.0. Earlier, Vachier-Lagrave beat Laurent Fressinet to earn the right to play Kasparov. Another interesting pairs' event saw Maxime and Laurent Baumel (Mayor of Ballan Mire) beat Gary Kasparov paired with Anthony Delon!
