Kim-Kardashian.jpgThe model, actress and fashion designer Kim Kardashian caused a stir in chess circles yesterday when she tweeted, "I want to learn how to play chess. Wondering if Levon Aronian can teach me!"

The Armenian world #3 ranked player Lev Aronian is currently playing at the prestigious Tata Steel tournament in the Netherlands.  He re-tweeted Kim's plea but didn't respond.

Chess.com owner Erik Allebest was touched by Kim Kardashian's interest in the royal game and has offered to sponsor her chess tuition, recommending 21-year old US Grandmaster Sam Shankland as the ideal tutor!

So if you're reading this Kim, please tweet your interest to @chesscom and become part of the #1 online chess community!

    Good on her for wanting to learn. If I end up playing Kim, I'll be sure to be polite, and I'll happily go through the game with her afterwards in the spirit of the great chess fraternity. It doesn't matter who you are, it just matters where you put your pieces on the board. G.

    Judging from the photo she has a lot to learn. 1...Qd8-e5 is an iIllegal move.
