Bono and Gary Kasparov … did they ever face-off in that chess match?
Back in July, 1993, Paul McGuinness bid £15,000 at a charity auction in London and won a match against world chess champion Gary Kasparov. It was written about in newspapers. Bono gave quotes saying he thought he could win, and promised to give £10,000 to charity if he lost.
The papers said the match would happen in August/September of 1993.
But did it? Anyone have proof yes or no?
