GM Larry Christiansen - Lecture and Simul at the BCC

Three time US Champion GM Larry Christiansen talked, in his lucid and humorous fashion, about some interesting games from the recent Corus tournament.

The presentation was rather high tech with a laptop and projection of chess base and a laser pointer, with which, as Ed Foye commented, we were able to locate d7.

At times it felt oddly like Mystery Science Theater 3000.

And some temptations were simply irresistable.

At 8:30 Larry did his cardio workout, walking briskly around the simul circuit.

Another great evening at the club. And thanks to Paul MacIntyre for organizing the event, buying refreshments, introducing Larry, hosting the evening, moving tables, cleaning up, etc.
