Chess for Ballooners

If you have always wanted to watch two International Masters playing chess 400 feet off the ground in a helium-filled balloon, then today is your lucky day.

During the recent British Championship IMs Andrew Greet and Jack Rudd (rivals from the neighbouring English counties of Cornwall and Devon) played just such a match. Andrew has been working at Quality Chess for a few months, so we pay particular attention to what he gets up to on his holidays.

YouTube has the story in two parts:

    You finished head and shoulders above the competition, congratulations Andrew on your 6.5/11 performance at this year’s British championships.
