GM Ipatov to Conduct Regular Simuls on Chess.com!

  • #1

    Hey Everyone, 

    Realizing that we don't *currently* have an official structure for announcing events in Live Chess that aren't direclty related to Chess.com/TV - I am posting a forum to get the word out!

    GM Alexander (Sasha) Ipatov - World Junior Champion and recent runner up in Death Match 12, will be performing regular, bi-weekly Simuls on Chess.com! The dates for the first four are set in stone here:

    14th April  19.00 UTC+3
    28th April  19.00 UTC+3
    12th May  21.00 UTC+3
    19th May  19.00 UTC+3
    We are calling them "Simul Sundays, with GM Ipatov!" -- Other dates will be announced in THIS thread as they become official.  
    • At the start time advertised, GM Ipatov (TheGadfly1897) will create 1 seek at a time for the time control of 30 minutes + 30 Second Increment;
    • The Simuls will be open to the first 10 players to accept his seeks;
    • To avoid "auto-abort" GM Ipatov will play the first few moves on each board before creating the next seek/starting the next game;
    Please post any questions here!

    This is great news, thanks for such an invaluable opportunity! But I wish there were some other way of determining the participants. For example, the first 10 users to post on this forum thread. Smile
