Chess App Lets You Get Whupped By A Child Prodigy

By Grab Media, a blinkx company

Most of us don't have a child chess prodigy handy when we want to practice our game. The Play Magnus iPhone app puts the champ in your pocket, but with a twist. You can play against Magnus Carlsen at various ages, from when he started out at age 5, all the way up to his current kick-butt self. Carlsen is a grandmaster from Norway and the current No. 1 chess player in the world. The 23-year-old says he launched the app, which uses a chess engine "tuned" from actual openings and games he's played, to inspire young people to get excited about chess.
