Kosteniuk Chess Simul in Oslo Schakselskap



Hello to all!

I'm packing my suitcase now since tomorrow early morning I will fly from Oslo to Paris.

Today was another day for me in the capital of Norway, Oslo, which I enjoyed very much. We started the day by going to the Viking ship musem. You can see me in this museum on the photo above.

Then we went up the Holmenkollen, a large ski-jump which hosted many international competitions including the VI Winter Olympics in 1952.

Afterwards we had lunch in the cosy TheaterCafeen and finally at 6 PM I faced 12 young players in a clock-simul in one of the oldest chess club of Norway - Schakselskap which turned 126 years old on February 4.


You can find the list of my opponents on the official web-site of the club, here. The final score of the simul was +11=1-0.

I should say that I'm very happy about my short visit to Norway and I want to thank Tom Ruud and Werner Kling for inviting me to Oslo and organizing this trip. I liked it very much and am looking forward to coming to Norway again!
