December 4, 2010 – Tansel Turgut Simul

Update:  Games, annotated by Joe Alford, are now available at this link.  (Link updated… sorry!!!)

We were very pleased to have Dr. Tansel Turgut come up from Decatur.  We had 14 players face LM Turgut, who agreed to simultaneously play all fourteen opponents with a G/60 time control on each board.

No challenger scored a win.  Congratulations to Joe Alford, Dennis Bourgerie, and Nathaniel Sobery, who all managed to draw!

A BIG thank you to Dr. Turgut for coming up and giving us an event to remember, and to Colley Kitson and Colley’s Chess Cafe for organizing the simul.

Some pictures are now available in the Photos section; more photos will be available at Colley’s Chess Cafe website shortly.  10 of the 14 games are now available at this link, annotated by Joe Alford.
