Join Britain’s legendary Grandmaster Raymond Keene for a simultaneous exhibition match, after which he will explain where you went wrong – assuming you lose…

Only the second ever Briton to become a Grandmaster, Raymond Keene is not only one of the greatest players this country has ever produced, representing the nation in tournaments for more than twenty years – he is also one of its most passionate advocates, organising some of the most important matches ever to take place in England and promoting the sport tirelessly in print and screen.

Now we are thrilled to give you the chance to test your knowledge and skill against a truly formidable opponent. In this simultaneous exhibition, Raymond will play up to twenty participants at once. We won’t be using time clocks – so you have plenty of time to think through your move. After the matches have concluded Raymond will analyse your performance so you can learn some new tricks.

You can access this event and many more by subscribing to How To +. The first month is £9.99 + VAT, thereafter £17.50 + VAT a month.
