Internet Desk: Legendary chess world champion Garry Kasparov is all set to come out from his retirement to take part in a US tournament in August, the organizers have announced today.

Kasparov, who played the game with total dominance for more than 15 years, will lock horns with top nine players including current world No.1 Magnus Carlsen of Norway, at the Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis, Missouri, they said.

“Ready to see if I remember how to move the pieces! Will I be able to announce my re-retirement afterward if not?!,” Kasparov himself tweeted sardonically.

Kasparov, who retired from professional chess in 2005, was given a wild card entry for the event’s Rapid and Blitz competition.

In 1985, he became the youngest world champion ever, at 22.
