After more than a month of organising, Jacob Aagaard will be in Singapore tomorrow!

From what I've seen, he appears to be enjoying himself very much as can be seen in the following vid:

Event details as follows:

Event: GM Jacob Aagaard on Chess Training
Date: 12th April (Wednesday)
Time: 7pm - 10pm
Venue: AQueen Hotel, 33 Jalan Afifi Singapore 409180 (Next to Cisco Centre II)
Lecture fee: S$10/nett (fees to be paid in cash on the day of the lecture)
*Refreshments will be provided
**4 Carpark coupons will be available on a first-come first served basis.
All participants will be issued a ticket upon payment of the entrance fee of $10 just before you enter the conference room. 
The exact subject of the lecture will be on the Four Types of Decisions that one generally has to make at the chess board. Jacob will go through his own grouping, i.e. automatic decisions, simple decisions, critical moments and strategic decisions, and discuss why thinking about the decisions made at the chess board in this way makes sense.

We have given significant liberty to allow payment at the venue, so to all registered participants, I am imploring you to show up! As you will soon see, there are many on the reserve list so you will be depriving others of a place if you don't turn up.

Here's an article by IM Sagar Shah that documents Jacob's experience in Delhi:

See you soon!
