My simul win against GM Nigel Davies


Today I had the chance to play in a simultaneous exhibition against veteran English grandmaster Nigel Davies. The event was held at and organised by Lancaster Library, and in total around 20 players played in the event. After the end, Nigel was good enough to stick around for quite a while, giving some analysis on some of the games played and answering questions.

Most of the games ended in a win for White (Nigel), and there were a couple of draws earned as well. Only one game ended in a lucky win for Black - see below!

I still don't think it has sunk in - I have a 100% record over the board against grandmasters! Nigel was very complimentary about my play, although I realise I caught all the luck today - well, I needed it! I was very happy with my play of course anyway. Thanks for reading.
