Ippolito's Attempt at World Record Delayed
postponed his attempt at the World Record for a chess simultaneous exhibition until the specific rules required by Guinness can be clarified (possibly some time in April 2011). There have been questions raised by Guinness regarding the age and affiliation of the players involved in the most recent records established in Iran and Israel, so Ippolito quite rightly does not want to go ahead until the Guinness criteria for qualified opponents can be clarified. Watch his website for further news and details.
