Tunde Onakoya has begun his 58-hour quest to break the Guinness World record for the longest unbeaten chess marathon. The event kicked off today, April 17th, at 10am in Times Square, New York, and is scheduled to conclude at 8pm on April 19th.

Tunde announced the plans of his attempt on his X account on April 5th, stating his motivation: “Doing this for the dreams of millions of children across Africa without access to education,” he posted.

The current Guinness World record for the longest chess marathon stands at 56 hours, 9 minutes, and 37 seconds and was set by Hallvard Haug Flatebø and Sjur Ferkingstad of Norway on November 11, 2018.
