Breast cancer and bullet chess. Two seemingly unrelated pairs of words, similar only in their initial letters, suddenly brought into each other’s acquaintance. And what better introducer than a charity event for National Cancer Prevention Month?
On February 17, 2012, a gentleman by the name of Bryan Bailey will play an incredible one-thousand-game marathon of bullet chess. That’s 1,000 consecutive games. Yes a thousand. The event is to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention where the proceeds will be donated directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
In ChessCube, Bryan goes by the handle Goose0202. Well, I helped him by playing some games. I can’t cover up whole 1000 games but here are some games which I played with him. If he finishes consecutive 1000 games then he may get $2000 dollars (approx.), which he will donate it to charity
He raised $1600+.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is a television game show which offers large cash prizes for correctly answering a series of multiple-choice questions of increasing difficulty.
John Carpenter became the first millionaire on the United States version of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire on November 19, 1999. He held the record for the largest single win in United States game show history, until it was broken by Rahim Oberholtzer who won $1.12 million on another U.S. quiz show, Twenty One. Carpenter was also the first top prize winner among all international versions of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? series.
