Chess legend Kasparov to play Croatian President in Split

Russian chess grandmaster and former world chess champion Garry Kasparov will challenge Croatian President Ivo Josipovic, the Mayor of Split Zeljko Kerum and Croatian popstar Severina, in an exhibition game of chess in the city of Split on July 21, reports daly newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija. The project titled 'Chess together with School' is aimed at getting kids into the game of chess. One of the organisers of the social - sport event is photographer Fedja Klaric, and he says that the game of chess is great for the brain and helps with kids development.

"The manifesto 'Chess together with School' is aimed at motivating kids to play the game of chess. According to the latest research, playing chess actively uses both sides of the brain, unlike most other activities, contributing to a child's maximum development. Kasparov is a great promoter of the idea," said Klaric.
