Blindfold Speed Chess: Baxter Hall 101 Lovell Lecture Room, 7:00PM - 8:00PM

Grandmaster Gregory Kaidanov returns to Wabash to play a blindfold speed chess game against a yet-to-be-named opponent. The grandmaster will need to make all his moves without seeing the chessboard. Speed chess rules apply - each player has five minutes to complete all his moves. If a player runs out of time, he loses. In addition, if a player makes an illegal move, he loses. After the game, Kaidanov will briefly analyze the game for the audience. This will be followed by a short chess talk.

Chess Simultaneous Match:: Detchon Center 100 International Hall, 8:00PM - 9:30PM

Grandmaster Kaidanov is extraordinarily gifted at chess and one of the very top players in the United States. Following the Blindfold Match, Grandmaster Kaidanov will play 30 games of chess simultaneously at 8 PM in Detchon International Hall. He will follow this with an exciting speed chess exhibition, playing 4 games of timed chess simultaneously, running from board to board to conserve the little time he is allocated.
