Derren Brown beats 9 chess players simultaneously. This is a video cut from "Trick of The Mind" series aired in the UK. The clip here is taken directly from Season 1 -- Episode 1. This is one of my favorite segments done by Derren. It explains for the most part how he did achieve the feat, and the trick is quite clever. Don't get too hung up on the ending though; it's merely a trick. I've got all of Derren's work on my computer, and if you're interested in somehow obtaining the information, email me at tranceriver@ and we'll talk. Cheers

Chess Tactics: Edward Lasker - G. Thomas (London, 1912) Interesting chess game presented by Serguei Vorojtsov. Subscribe to my channel & newsletter at High resolution videos are available here --- Edward Lasker (Kempen, December 3, 1885 -- New York, March 25, 1981) was a leading American chess and Go player. He was awarded the title of International Master of chess by FIDE. Lasker was an engineer by profession, and an author. Edward Lasker published several books on American checkers, chess, and Go. He won five US Open Chess Championships (1916, 1917, 1919, 1920, 1921). His best result was his narrow 8.5--9.5 loss in a match with Frank Marshall for the US Championship in 1923. For that, Lasker was invited to participate in the legendary New York chess tournament in 1924, facing world-class masters like Alekhine, Capablanca, Rubinstein, Emanuel Lasker (a distant cousin), and Réti. --- His most famous game is probably the queen sacrifice and king hunt against Sir George Thomas. Thomas said, "That was very nice", and Lasker was touched by his sportsmanship when it was translated into German (he had yet to learn English). But in his account, he gave a position missing the white pawn on d4, so Lasker contrasted Thomas's reaction with a typical reaction that other opponents would have given, "You were lucky ..." --- He was friends with former World chess champion Emanuel Lasker. Some controversy exists as to whether they were related. Edward Lasker wrote in his memoirs of the New York 1924 ...
