GM Ipatov to Conduct Regular Simuls on Chess.com!

DanielRensch

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:

SCHEDULE:
 
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.  
 
FORMAT:
 
  • 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
