Grandmaster Simul for Juniors

(12:00 noon, March 15, 2008)

Have you ever played a Grandmaster? These kids did in 2006. Now you have a chance to do the same, or better, to play two GMs in one game! And if you win or draw, you make history! Because the GMs will make alternate moves without consulting each other, your chance of defeating them are much higher. Photo below: GM Seirawan (left) and GM Suttles were analyzing their game.

GMs

A new book about GM Duncan Suttles (currently BC's only grandmaster) will be launched on March 15th at Vancouver Bridge Centre (see this page for out of town accommodation). To celebrate this occasion, GM Yasser Seirawan , the book's co-author and 4-time US champion, is coming to town. In this rare event they will return to the chess board and challenge BC juniors in a simultaneous exhibition.

Schedule:

At 12:00 noon, a hot dog and pop/juice lunch will be provided for juniors.

At 1:00 pm, Grandmasters Duncan Suttles and Yasser Seirawan will give a tandem (alternating move) simultaneous against juniors rated under 1800.

At 3:30 pm, Grandmasters Duncan Suttles and Yasser Seirawan will give a tandem (alternating move) simultaneous against adults, selected juniors and juniors who won or drew in the first simultaneous.

At 7:00 pm, a social gathering (business attire) will convene, for both chess players and non-chess players. Food will be provided. Chess players may continue to play in the front area of the Bridge Centre.

Pre-ordered books will be available for pickup and signing. Books may be ordered at a pre-release discount at: Suttles: Chess on the Edge (3 Book Set)
