About Event

Attention all Chess players!! and are joining forces to bring you a very special opportunity to face off against one of the world’s greatest Chess players, certified GRANDMASTER Rustem Dautov! Although it’s highly unlikely any will come close, those who seem to create the most interesting positions will be awarded prizes by Grandmaster Dautov himself.

Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get your derrière absolutely handed to you. On a Parisian boat nonetheless! 

Game Format:
There are 8 chess tables and the grandmaster plays on all 8 tables simultaneously. Chess players take a table and when their game is finished, they step away and another chess player takes their place.

It takes about 40 minutes for a full game of chess, but in this situation, people may lose much quicker than that. Please register early to reserve a spot approval at one of the time options; the event will be first-come, first to play.

Socializing & Refreshments:
Spectators are welcome to share in our provided drinks and refreshments! You can help the player against the grandmaster and discuss moves, but any help via telephone or electronic devices of any kind will lead to disqualification.

We’ll also have extra boards scattered about so you can play with your friends! Some variations like Blitz, Hand, Brain, and community free play will be available.

Boat Area:
The boat is docked 10 min walk from EthCC at the address linked above.

Note: You must register for this event to participate.
