Kudrin Simul in Belle Mead

The Greater Somerset County Chess Club is proud to announce the first ever simultaneous exhibition with grandmaster Sergey Kudrin of New Jersey on Sunday, June 29, 2008. GM Kudrin recently played in this year's U.S. Championship and finished in 3rd place amid tough competition.

There are 25 seats available on an advanced registration basis only. Preference will be given to scholastic players and club members, then on a first-come-first-serve basis. The entry fee for this event is $25. The simul will start promptly at 1:15 pm and will most likely run the duration until the club's curfew at 4:45 pm. Clocks are not necessary. To register, please send an e-mail to stating your name, age, and rating if available.

The club meets from 1 to 5 pm, unless otherwise noted, at 40 Pike Run Road, Belle Mead, NJ 08502, in the rental office building of the Pike Run Community Club House. As usual, casual play is always available to those who do not want to play in the day's structured event.
