To celebrate the release of the fantastic documentary Bobby Fischer Against The World (in cinemas from 15 July), we are brimming with excitement at the news that we can offer all you budding chess players a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play former UK champion and Grandmaster Nigel Short - this is an opportunity not to be missed!
On Tuesday 5 July, we will be hosting a special London premiere event in which we've challenged former World Number 3 Nigel Short to play 20 opponents in a simultaneous exhibition match. YOU could be one of the lucky 20.
There's TWO easy ways to enter:
1. Visit our Facebook Page and become our friend by 21 June (also known as Demand Zero Day if you’re a true Dogwoof follower!) to go into a draw from which five players will be chosen.
2. Become a Dogwoof Ambassador and host your own screening of the film - the first three confirmed Ambassadors will be offered a place.
We'll be announcing more opponents for Nigel in the coming weeks, along with further details of this exciting launch - stay tuned, invite your friends and start practising your moves!
