Q&A with Chess Legend Vladimir Kramnik

Vladimir Kramnik reached world no. 1 as a 19-year-old and this year celebrates the 20th anniversary of beating Garry Kasparov to become the 14th World Chess Champion. Now, this Monday, you have the chance to both play and ask a question of a true legend of the game. Vladimir will be playing chess24 Premium members from 18:00 CEST and then answering questions from 19:15 CEST. Premium members can ask Vlad a question in the comments section below.

Vladimir Kramnik retired from classical chess early last year, but he’s still a formidable opponent, as his bronze medal in the 2019 World Blitz Championship testified. On Monday 20th July there’s a unique chance to play one of the all-time greats:
