“Former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov was Avast’s special guest for the evening. The highlight of his visit for gala guests was watching him play against 11 opponents simultaneously. Five lucky Avast employees and 6 guests were chosen to be the Grandmaster’s opponents. It took Kasparov less than one hour to decidedly defeat each of the star-struck opponents, however no players were beat in less than 20 moves.
Guest player Alex Barrasso, five-time winner of the U.S. Championship for Blind Players, said, “For any chess player – whether you’re a casual player or a serious player – just to get the opportunity to sit across the board from someone like him, who is perhaps the greatest player ever to live, is an honor.”
