Carlsen & Giri’s #MoveForEquality

Arch rivals Magnus Carlsen and Anish Giri combined yesterday to break a rule in chess – the convention that White goes first! The exhibition game was played to highlight the fight for equality on the eve of today’s United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Here at chess24 we’re marking the day with a 12-hour Banterthon with Grandmasters Jan Gustafsson, Loek van Wely and Jan Smeets, where Black will start first in all of the games.
