Russian grandmaster and former World champion Garry Kasparov will visit Kenya on Saturday to promote chess among the youth.
In a now-or-never situation, World Champion Viswanathan Anand will take on Fabiano Caruana of Italy in the eighth round of fifth Final Masters here.
Chennai: At 42, Viswanathan Anand is the second oldest of the top ten FIDE ranked players in the world, but the reigning world chess champion today ruled out any plans of retiring.
Anand said that he has to do "informed guesswork" based on his intuition in many crucial situations and those moves turn out to be the winners.
Anand told media here that with chess not being an Olympic sport, and the process of getting it included being a very lengthy one, his playing days would be over when that happens.
