Play a Game of Chess with the #1 Ranked Player in the World

Parallels Summit 2013 is in Las Vegas – the gaming capital of the world – so we figured why not play some really serious games. What's more serious than chess? So we're bringing in Magnus Carlsen - the #1 ranked chess player in the world. Magnus will be at the reception playing simultaneous chess against multiple Parallels Summit attendees. Who knows, you might get a chance to say you lost a game of chess to the best player in the world.

We'll do a drawing to pick the multiple players for the chess game. If you want to be included in the drawing send us an email by January 31, 2013 with your name, company name and email address. Those picked in the drawing will be notified in advance of Parallels Summit. Participants will get to keep the chess sets used during the tournament and each will be autographed by the very own Magnus Carlsen.

Note: You must be registered for Parallels Summit 2013 in order to be included in the drawing.
