Chess Grandmaster Elshan Moradiabadi will play a charity chess hybrid simul (online and physical) vs 50 people. The room is only big enough for 30 boards, so as soon as one person loses the next will sit down to challenge. He will start at board 1 and make his move, then to board 2 to make his move and then sequentially to each board around the room in circular fashion. He will play 30 physical games simultaneously + the online boards. Also, the games will be displayed online via chess.com and there will be live video expert commentary. More on the tech details later.
The online spots to play him are being auctioned. To make a bid or rebid see the registration page. It is as simple as sending an email. To see your position in the bid list, look at the bidders page in the tabs above. Money for the bids will be sent at time of bid. Physcial spots obtained by donation. A method for extra online donations will be available during the event. All donations and money for the playing spots will go to Red Cross relief for the Ukraine.
