Grandmaster Sergey Karjakin

Sergey Karjakin Endorsement

“Tensor Chess is firmly rooted in the traditions of classical chess, yet it is also a daring and fascinating innovation. The new game has a new piece that magnifies the power of the standard pieces. A traditional piece connected to the new piece in effect can occupy two squares while being vulnerable to attack on only one of them.”
