How good do you think you are at chess? Could you be Norfolk's next Chess Grandmaster? Can you play two games at once? How about 20?

This is the challenge set to Chess Grandmaster and three times Chess Problem Solving World Champion John Nunn who will be taking on 20 players from the Norwich Dons Chess Club as they celebrate it's 40 year anniversary.

On May 29 the master will be taking on this feat which will see him moving from board to board making multiple moves instantaneously at The Gas Club, Roundtree Way, Norwich.

Member John Dolamore said; 'We hope this promotes the game of chess as it can be difficult for young people to move into the leagues from school. We are very lucky to attract a man of his talents, this should get people interested as chess is a vibrant game.'

For more information call Mr Dolamore on 07867 806657.
