My Dad Konstantin Kosteniuk’s Robot Chess Terminator plays GM Grischuk

Hello everyone!
Maybe you know that my Dad Konstantin Kosteniuk likes to invent things, he’s invented quite a few things in his life. His most recent invention is the “Chess Terminator”, a modern day chess robot that can play up to 3 people at the same time and with incredible speed, precision, and strength.
I’d like to share with you a video of my Dad’s robot playing one of the leading Grandmasters in the world, Alexander Grischuk.
Enjoy!
