My Simul Game With IM atillaturzo
Jul 20, 2015, 9:58 PM 3
This was a 20 board simul given by IM Attila Turzo, and sponsored by adamredsox24. This was my first game against a titled player, and it was against an International Master! A big thank you to IM Turzo and adamredsox24 for giving me this great experience.
The simul took place on July 19, 2015 which is significant for me because I joined chess.com and began studying the game of chess on July 20, 2014. This was a great way to close out my first year of chess!
I was suprised by the Benko Gambit in this game, but luckily I had a little experience with it. I prepared a line against it for a Slow Chess League game a few months ago. I was greatful to have had some of that knowledge floating around. Otherwise I don't think I would have lasted as long as I did.
