Simultaneous Display by GM Gennady Gutman

Thursday 16 October, 2014

Many thanks to Ukranian GM Gennady Gutman for giving the first ever clock simul at Hendon Chess Club on October 16th!

There were no early losses, but eventually GM Gutman came out unbeaten with 16 wins and one draw, against Rohit Majumdar.

Book prizes were awarded to both Rohit and Elizabeth Ivanov.

Top seed Jonathan Landau was last to finish, and seemed to be doing very well at the time this photo was taken!

Thanks also to Adam Raoof for organising the simul and taking photos.
