The Most Epic Chess Scam of All Time!

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

Hi everyone,

Here is an interesting video for the weekend. The video was sent to us by a reader Hari L. Poonaswamy, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Brian matches wits with the Stanford Chess Club to put one of his favorite chess scams to the test! It's a based on a classic tale where a con man tells a room full of chess players that he'll play each of them simultaneously and manage to win or draw at least half of the the games. Can a Stanford chess whiz pull this off or is it just a theoretical puzzle? Watch and find out!

Okay, okay, we know you are reacting strongly with all that about amateur chess, grandmaster chess, and scams, and stories... well, just put your comments below. Have a Chessy Weekend!
