Michael Adams Chess Simul in Shropshire March 1

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2014

Hello everyone,

Here's some chess simul news for all fans of British Grandmaster Michael Adams. The Shropshire Chess Association is organising a simul with GM Adams on Saturday, March 1, 2014, in Telford.
Michael Adams is currently the 10th highest ranked chess player in the world and had one of the best results of his career in August when he won the Dortmund tournament. 

The Shropshire simul is a joint initiative by Michael Bukojemski of Condover and Church Stretton Chess Club. 

Michael Adams has agreed to take on up to 40 players at the Wrekin Housing Trust in Telford and the event will also involve a ‘blitz’ chess event and a brief lecture by Michael Adams who will give an insight into how a super Grandmaster analyses a game, taking the audience through some of his recent encounters.

The Adams simul follows a similar event held two years ago when leading British Grandmaster and former world championship finalist, Nigel Short took on 35 Shropshire players. With a maximum of 40 boards available, local chess players are advised to book early for this unique opportunity to take on Britain’s top player.

VenueThe Wrekin Housing Trust is a high class venue that was used for the Nigel Short event and is the current location for the Shropshire Chess Congress.

The official website of the Shropshire Chess Association has more details.
