Anish Giri plays simultaneous in Brussels

In his first public performance since the Candidates’ tournament Dutch grandmaster Anish Giri, also ambassador of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament, plays simultaneous chess in Brussels today.

He will face 25 European Commission employees. Giri will play the simultaneous at the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands at the EU.

Tata Steel thus builds on the Torentje Schaak Simultaan tradition, which sees one of the participants in the Tata Steel Masters play parliamentarian chess players in the Dutch Parliament building in the Hague. This event always takes place two days after the Tata Steel Chess Tournament. This year world champion Magnus Carlsen played that simultaneous event.

The 79th edition of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament takes place from Friday 13 January – Sunday 29 January 2017.
