Simul at the office

Three members from a local chess club kindly accepted to give a chess lecture at my office and to play some simul games. Below is one of my games. We agreed to a premature draw to have time for a second game. I messed up the protocol from the second game but it was not as interesting but still a fine example of a fine player grinding down a generic patzer.

Note: James Stripes made some interesting comments about this game on his blog Chess Skills


  1. 24. Bc4 looks pretty good for white at a glance. The bishops come off the board and that black knight is going to have some troubles getting away alive. But yeah, h6 to weaken f6 and h6 is also an idea as well. Cheers!

  2. The whole time playing through the game, I was waiting for h5-h6. I think that White has a clear advantage with better coordinated pieces and a slightly less vulnerable king due to more escape squares in case of attack.
