Simul Success

Posted: 19/10/2017 by Ian in Club News

IMG_2978The Simul with Herman proved a great success. Herman took on 21 eager members, and ended up with a score 0f +19.5 =1-1. Notable games were a win for Prashant and an agreed draw in a king and pawn ending for Ian. The event ran for around 3 hours, with Eushin the last player to fall. Our thanks go to Herman and hope that he offers the same opportunity to us in the future. Photos from the event can be viewed here.
