Kasparov Sold on eBay

Ever dreamt of playing against the great man himself, Gary Kasparov? Well, now you have a chance. All you need is a few thousand dollars to spare. eBay is auctioning 25 seats for a simul against Kasparov. Bidding will commence at $2000.

Not just a game, but a memory in the making, the head-to-head competition takes place on June 12th in Manhattan's famed New York Athletic Club. The 25 highest bidders will be able to invite up to three guests each to share in the evening of festivities, which also includes a cocktail hour, full sit-down dinner, photos and autographs with Garry, as well as a certificate commemorating the event. All proceeds will benefit the Kasparov Chess Foundation's chess education in the schools efforts.
