It’s Hearthstone Versus Chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov In This Mini Documentary

Chess recently received a boost in popularity thanks to the release of Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit in October 2020. In the real world, Garry Kasparov is a grandmaster in the game and is considered to be the greatest chess player the world has ever seen.

However, he lost to an AI opponent about 25 years ago. Now, he’s about to take on a brand new game, Hearthstone, in a new mini-documentary titled The Brain’s Last Stand, which is now available on YouTube.

In a statement, Kasparov said:

“I enjoyed learning and playing Hearthstone very much, and not just because I like games and new challenges. What was most intriguing is that Hearthstone is a semi-open system, unlike most other games, which are closed systems like chess.

In Hearthstone, the dynamic of new cards constantly adds freshness and new tactical and strategic elements, so the values of old cards and decks aren’t static. This shifting terrain makes Hearthstone difficult to master but endlessly engaging.”
