Tansel Turgut Simul Photos

On December 4th, 2010, Dr. Tansel Turgut came up from Decatur to play a 14 player simultaneous exhibition.  Some photos are avaiable after the cut, and more will be available at Colley’s Chess Cafe website shortly.

Clicking on the photos will bring up larger resolutuion images, and use your browser’s “back” button to come back here.  We do have a few more photos than these, and all of the photos are available in one still larger resolution – contact Darren Erickson regarding any of the below photos.

It was a cold day outside…  It is still snowing in the photo below:

And, in the end, the author didn’t have enough energy to take another photo.  :( 😉
