Stella Artois is breaking into the world of competitive chess with the help of Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura. Together, the beer brand and Nakamura are hosting the virtual Bullet Chess Speedrun, where they will "attempt to break the Chess.com record for the most unique opponents beaten in a bullet chess game," all of which will be shared live on Hikaru’s Twitch channel.
Those wishing to test their skills against the Grandmaster in bullet chess (where players only have a minute to play a full game), can sign up until May 27th. The tournament will take place on June 1st, and Stella Artois will be giving away a variety of prizes to those who comment in the Twitch chat with "!StellaChessGiveaway." The brand is also launching a collection of merchandise to celebrate the collaboration, which is set to drop on June 2nd on ShopBeerGear.com.
