Twenty-four-year-old chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen destroyed three opponents simultaneously while playing blindfolded in a timed match early this month at the Sohn Conference in New York City.

Carlsen's challengers included Wall Street financier J. Christopher Flowers, the chairman and founder of J.C. Flowers & Co; Paul Hoffman, the president and CEO of the Liberty Science Center; and actor Gbenga Akinnagbe from "The Wire."

The challengers were not blindfolded. Meanwhile, Carlsen had to envision each of his opponents' boards in his head while he made his moves.

The Sohn Conference, which was held May 4, is one of the biggest hedge fund gatherings of the year. The annual event raises funds for pediatric cancer research.
