Chess candidate master Phiona Mutesi, realised her dream when she played former World Chess champion Garry Kasparov of Russia at the Women in World Summit in New York yesterday afternoon.
It was the first time that the chess ace was meeting the 'Michael Jordan' of Chess in the world at a summit where she was invited together with her guardian Robert Katende for the Women in World Summit "Stories and Solutions".
According to the Daily Beast it stated After some small talk, Kasparov and Mutesi got down to the match.
For the opening moves Mutesi kept up with the grand master. The two traded queens early in the match and were even at least in terms of pieces. But Kasparov had managed to push his pawns to Mutesi’s side of the board.
Eventually, Kasparov broke through her defense and was one move away from forking Mutesi’s king and rook. The Ugandan recognized the vulnerability of her position and offered her hand in resignation.
