Watch Grandmaster Garry Kasparov play chess against a dozen other players in a simultaneous chess tournament!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Think fast. Think under pressure. That's how you win in chess... and in business. CVWarehouse is the living proof of that.

To celebrate a successful year and to demonstrate all the new features of our latest CVWarehouse software release, we are hosting an exclusive chess tournament at the Alfacam television studios in Lint on November 19th 2007.

The CVWarehouse chess tournament is certain to be the most prestigious business event of the year. We have invited Grandmaster Garry Kasparov, former World Chess Champion (1985-2000), to play chess against a number of other players in a simultaneous chess tournament. Two dozen business executives have already accepted the challenge. Famous British Grandmaster Nigel Short, former Vice World Champion, will report live on the status of the different games.

It would be an honour for CVWarehouse to welcome you as our guest. You can join us for a walking dinner and have the opportunity to visit the gallery where the tournament is taking place. You can follow every game on several screens and learn more about the new features of CVWarehouse at the same time.
