Sting will face off world chess champ Gary Kasparov on June 29 in an exhibition game to be held in New York’s Times Square. Proceeds from the event are said to be going to the musician’s “Rainforest” environmental-preservation group. Kasparov, who is one tough player, will play Sting and three band members of the group Police — Dominic Miller, Jason Rebello and Chris Botti — in a simultaneous bout.
