Cuban chess player seeks to set a record of simultaneous games

Havana, Dec 4 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Grandmaster Omar Almeida will seek to set a national record of 32 simultaneous chess games with timing next Saturday at the Plaza Hotel in Havana, the weekly Jit reported this Monday.

Almeida will have in his clock a time of two and a half hours, adding 10 seconds after each move, and his rivals will have 45 minutes and 10 seconds added after each touch of the clock.

Those who face the Cuban Grandmaster must have Elo coefficients of 1,500 to 2,000 points, according to the Cuban Chess Federation, which will organize the tournament with the support of local projects.

“Before I have faced up to 13 boards. Of course, now it will be much more difficult and will involve several hours playing,” Almeida told Jit.

A member of the national pre-selection, Almeida was fifth in the recently concluded Panama 2023 Ibero-American Championship.
