Top chess player Timur Gareev takes on Cook Co. inmates
November 1, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- One of the best chess players anywhere took on 10 inmates at the Cook County Jail, and there were a couple of twists.
Timur Gareev played 10 games all at once, and while blindfolded.
He was told how each inmate played and then had someone make his moves for him while he visualized all 10 chess boards.
Gareev is the number 3 ranked chess player in the country.
His goal is to someday play 50 games at once.
