Zerodha founder Nikhil Kamath has been in the news in last 24 hours for all ambiguous reasons. The whole talk is centered at one chess game meant for charity purposes. The game of chess was played between Nikhil Kamath and Indian ace Vishwanathan Anand.
Internet boomed with many speculations and frenzy as five time world champion Anand was defeated by Nikhil. Many accused Nikhil of cheating and manipulating the game. All the mess that followed was shortly addressed by him as well. He clarified his stand with this tweet.
It is ridiculous that so many are thinking that I really beat Vishy sir in a chess game, that is almost like me waking up and winning a 100mt race with Usain Bolt. 😬 pic.twitter.com/UoazhNiAZV
