Other than the Knight's Tour videos I've featured here and here, chess hasn't made much of an appearance on this blog.
Derren Brown, who has been featured once or twice before here, helps to remedy the situation. In the above video, he challenges 9 champion chess players simultaneously, and actually wins most of the games! He also predicts (mostly) the number of pieces that will be left on the board, too. Stick through to the end, and he'll actually explain part of the feat, as well.
In another Derren Brown video, he performs some amazing feats of memory with playing cards, as well. Be warned that there is some brief profanity in this video, however.
