Little girls draw checkmate on Viswanathan Anand with chess doubt
I feel like if you really want to mess around, you should talk to little kids. They always come up with the most random questions to make you question your own intellect. And now chess player Viswanathan Anand has been forced to question his entire career after two little girls asked him some really interesting questions about chess.

Legendary Indian chess player Viswanathan Anand recently found himself baffled by questions from two little fans during the Chess Olympiad in Chennai. He was left searching for an answer when the twins, who were eight, asked him a simple chess question. This was because the question was difficult for the majority of people to understand. The children are seen deliberating on what to ask the grandmaster in a video posted to Twitter. In the end, they decided to ask about the “distraction” of chess pieces.

Anand answers the question, which he misunderstands, but the girl interrupts him and puts her back. Puzzled Anand says he has no idea. While laughing he continued to say that he tries but they never get distracted, he humorously added that one can try to distract your opponent but he is unable to distract from the pieces.
It will make you smile 😊😊. So adorable 😊😊 https://t.co/191N5bK4Qm

Anand recently said he was happy with his role as “enthusiastic mentor” and had never thought of changing his mind about skipping the Olympiad after Chennai was chosen to host it instead of Russia.
Super cute and super good😘😀 https://t.co/aY6Ujsjlts

Five-time world champion Anand had opted out this time around, but he will lead the Indian team in the championship game, which will take place in Mamallapuram from July 28 to August 10.
