Baseball and Chess in Lakewood, NJ August 10, 2009

Posted by Jennifer in : chess , trackback

On August 3rd, I went to a minor league baseball game to root on the Lakewood BlueClaws and to play 25 chess enthusiasts simultaneously (while the baseball game was in full swing). There were so many interested players that my dad also took on 25+! I lost one, drew three and won all the rest. My dad had no losses and a few draws. My brother also came, so we decided to add a special twist to my simul. I gave each of my opponents a "Call an IM" pass, in which they could call Greg over and ask for advice. The opportunity to learn from an International Master was a big hit, although I squirmed every time I saw Greg  generously mentoring over a board I thought was in the bag.  Article with game fragments coming soon to Chess Life Online! Here’s the photo gallery:

I guess they found me through my website! I posted the article on CLO: http://main.uschess.org/content/view/9622/343/

I don’t see the photo gallery! Is it just me?

Sounds like a really cool event. Love the idea of the IM ‘lifeline’
