Kiril Georgiev, a chess grandmaster from Bulgaria, has broken a chess world record by playing 360 games simultaneously, and finishing the games in 14 hours and 8 minutes. He lost just six of the games and drew 70 of them.
His opponents ranged from children to pensioners and before he could qualify for the record, he had to win at least 80% of the games played. Officials confirm that Georgiev won 88%. The feat is now being submitted to the Guinness Book of Records.
The last record was held by Susan Polgar, who in 2005 played 326 games simultaneously, losing just three of them, drawing 14, and winning 309.
