Knight's Tour Print E-mail

Hi Joel,

I was wondering if you know how much time it takes a typical, top GM to complete a knight's tour of the board covering all 64 squares?

Regards

I've never attempted to do the knight's tour. I suspect that most grandmasters wouldn't have any more interest in it than I do. The knight's tour is a puzzle without any real connection to playing chess.

It's purely a guess but I don't think GMs would necessarily do any better than lower rated players.
