Would be interesting to know the average rating of all of his opponents.
My guess is that a satanist chess player will try for 666 at the same time but who the heck knows....Records are made to be broken and I don't think this record will last that long. However, I will add congrats to the new record holder it is still an impressive feat.
The record is the most number of games played. However, you must at leat win 80% of the games for the record to be approved.
Is this record about the most number of boards simultaneously played (in this case, 604) or the most number of victories from playing 604 opponents simultaneously?
Anything is possible :)
It was actually 614 games. It was about 55 Kilometers walking and 25 hours of playing with a nice winning percentage !
Congrats to Ehsan Ghaemmaghami,
but I guess the record can be broken, maybe sometime later !
Such a stupid question. No, that record will stand eternally forever and ever and ever and ever. Come on.
If you look at the statistics, I'd say yes. There have been many world records, and most of them have been broken.
Most records like this rank right up there with eating 59 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Nothing against the master who did it, I'm sure he is a great chess player. But you reach a point where you say, What's the point? In 10 years we may have someone who can play 100,000 people. Yawnnnnn wake me when it's over
Walking so many kilometers and playing so many hours puts this feat out of the realm of legitimate chessplaying and closer to something like chessboxing.
i impress if he become a world champion. maybe all his opponent is his relative. he try come here and challenge in the street chess player if takes won easy
Hi lsfc .
If you want to ge familiar with our Grand Master you can visit this link:
Pointless record! Every decent chess player in good health could play even more people and score a better % of wins, with the appropriate opponents... Never heard of an Iranian challenger of the World Champion, though...
He walked over 35 miles!
when we fail to exceed our predecessors then man is dead.
clearly Moca guy's not happy w/ his horrible chess skillz
worst question in history of questions. it's broken, who's to say it won't
Congratulations to GM Maghami!
Well,it is a pretty amazing record, must have been very hard!
First of all, with all due respect, saying that it's impossible for somone except the same Maghami to break the record is pretty ridiculous to say, knowing that since 2009 this record was broken every year.
Anyway, You can be sure that both the Israeli and Iranian records were supported by a political organization and have something to do with politics.
