Chess Grandmaster and TSM streamer Hikaru Nakamura has joined forces with Anheuser-Busch brand Stella Artois for a new livestreaming program – the Bullet Chess Speedrun challenge. Nakamura will attempt to set a new record for the most opponents defeated in a single hour in bullet chess ( a mode on Chess.com in which each player has a total time pool of one minute for the game).
Stella Artois will actively register a pool of participants, and Nakamura will compete against them for an hour live on his Twitch channel. Viewers of the challenge will also have opportunities to win various Stella Artois-branded products.
Chess continues to ride the wave of momentum it saw amidst the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the release of the hit Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit.
