World Champion Viswanathan Anand will play a match against the World via Chess.com's “Vote Chess” platform on July 14th at 10:30 AM PST. Chess.com LLC and Metropolitan Chess, Inc. have partnered up once again to make this amazing event possible – the second year with such a collaboration. View last year's game here!

Vishy will be a head instructor at the 3rd Metropolitan Chess Camp from July 10th to July 14th which will be held at The Radisson Hotel at Los Angeles Airport – teaching the various groups at the camp. Alongside him, other coaches at the camp include: Grandmasters Vadim Milov, Dejan Bojkov, and Melikset Khachiyan, as well as International Masters Armen Ambartsoumian, Andranik Matikozyan, and Zhanibek Amanov.

He will conclude his instructional activities on the earlier days by playing a Simultaneous Exhibition the morning of July 14th against a group of individuals from the camp. Of those simul boards, one board will be dedicated to the Chess.com community. In an aggregate style of play, the community will vote for their suggested move, and the move that gets the most votes will be played.

The World Champion will play the white pieces and "The World" will have 3 minutes to vote on their move choice. Vishy may be alloted more time if he is unable to make his way around the "Live Simul" in time. Chess.com will have a relayer to play on the actual board for Vishy as he moves from board to board during the Simul, who will play the World’s move.

This format of the event -- World Vote Chess Match within a Simul is a rarity only having been done once before – with Vishy as the trendsetter last year. Last year’s match between the World Champion and the World concluded in a draw:



The entire match, with the inclusion of other interesting games from the simultaneous exhibition, will be covered on Chess.com/TV. International Master Daniel Rensch and other co-hosts will bring you all the action live, including on site interviews with the players of the simul, and the staff of the 3rd Metropolitan Chess Camp.

    Usually, in a simul, the person giving the simul gets white on every board.

    Shouldn't we play with the white pieces, considering Anand played with them in 2012? Still, it is going to be a very exciting match :D

    EnemyNightmare789, you don't need the World Champion to learn to play an opening besides the Scholar's Mate. Almost anyone can teach you. Tongue Out

    Dear Mr. Viswanathan Anand

         It will be an honor to play (or at least influence play) a world chess champion. And also like shaveen (under me) I would really appreciate some tips/short lessons on oppenings (the only one I really use is a scholars-mate attempt) and anything else you would be willing to teach me.

         I hope this prooves to be an exciting game, and good luck to you! Wink

    every body has 1 vote.2500 rated player and 800 rated player too,therefore because low rated players are more than advanced players in chess.com i think anand will win the game but if chess.com just accepted above 2000 rated players in votechess,chess.com would win the game.
