Simultaneous Exhibition


Today NM Ian Harris held a virtual simul, playing against 17 opponents at the same time and giving live commentary on his thoughts to viewers throughout the event. With a time control of 45 minutes with a 10 second increment, and a very tough field with players as high as 1987 the pressure was high on Harris from the beginning. At one point during the match Harris found himself down to less than a minute on as many as four boards. However, by keeping his cool and making use of the increment he was able to win or draw in most of the games. The final result was 8 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses for a total of 10-7 in favor of the master.
