Beijing Chess Night

A girl from Beijing went to Indiana to study law, and while she didn’t finish her degree, she did perfect her English, and she fell in love with chess. After coming back to China, and her home town Beijing, she tapped into the already thriving chess scene and founded Beijing Chess. On a spring Saturday evening, a good deal of planning bore fruit with the success of the first “Beijing Chess Night.” Young protégés, rising stars and expats from around the world mingled and tried their hands against a Chinese grand master, who is ranked among the global chess elite.

The grand master played up to twenty games at once for five hours straight!
