Grandmaster Kekelidze Simul

April 6th,

Sixteen brave participants came to the club to challenge our very own Grandmaster Instructor Mikheil Kekelidze in a simultaneous exhibition. The players ranged widely in age and strength. Although the Grandmaster proceeded to defeat his opponents seemingly with ease, there were many that put up tough resistance and forced the simul to continue into the evening, tiring the GM. Finally, the effort paid off when CCFC student Henry Stratakis-Allen managed to draw! This would be the only point the challengers would manage to get and the simul ended in favor of GM Kekelidze by a score of 15.5 – 0.5. It was a truly fun and memorable event and we hope that you will join us next time!
