Lessons from the simul
Back in December, my good friend Nigel Mitchell invited me to play a simul and present my new book "Chess Exam Matches: You vs. Fischer"at the North Penn Chess Club (NPCC) in Lansdale, PA, where he is one of the officers. I eagerly accepted, recalling fond memories from my past tournaments there in the 90s and a simul a couple of years back. The final details were worked out with Eric Funk, another officer of the club. Finally, on December 11, I arrived at the club and saw many of the familiar faces, among them Don Funk, Bob Kampia and Father Farrell, as well as some new faces.
