GM Hou Yifan Simul and Open Blitz Finals Saturday March 1: Full House!

February 25th, 2014

Saturday 1 March will be the busiest day in our club’s young history. In the morning from 9am to 10.30am we are honored with the visit of Women World Champion GM Hou Yifan who will play simultane chess against 20 players. Although the odds of beating Yifan are not that large it will definitely be a memorable event for all players – and in addition all will get a souvenir, of course.

Then at 11am, with just 30 minutes in between, we will move from the simul to our Winter 2014 Blitz Open. And at full club capacity of 32 players the list of participants is as follows (for the ones who wish to prepare …):
