DETROIT (AP) - Chess champion Hikaru Nakamura plans to play 50 members of the Detroit City Chess Club simultaneously at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The event, known as a simul (SEYE’-muhl), takes place Friday evening at the museum’s Great Hall.

The Detroit City Chess Club plays most Friday nights at the museum and members range from age 5 to 18 years old. Under founder and coach Kevin Fite, the club this year won regional and state championships. In 2014 it won national, regional and state championships.

Detroit City Chess Club All-Stars from the 2015 All-City Chess Team will go up against Nakamuri. Fite uses simuls to develop the skills of his players.
