Grandmaster Takes on All Comers

georgiev02Bulgarian Grand Master Kiril Georgiev broke the world record for the largest number of simultaneous chess matches on Monday when he played 360 games at one time. The marathon process took 14 hours and 8 minutes with Georgiev playing against opponents ranging from children to retired old people.

His final record at the end of the challenge, 284 wins, 70 draws and only 6 losses. The record has now been submitted to the Guinness Book of Records for certification.

Pretty impressive I suppose, although those 6 losses are a bit embarrassing, after all, he IS a GRANDMASTER and then he gets beat by little Billy from some nearby elementary school?
