IM Dave Vigorito Lecture and Simul

IM David Vigorito discussed what he said was one of the most important and under-appreciated factors in tournament chess - decisioning making.

He illustrated his points with some fascinating positions from his recent games.

In a game from Foxwoods with GM Shabalov, he showed a position from which there were 5 winning lines and a 6th which led to an interesting draw. Dave played the drawing line.

The smallish audience was intensively fascinated by Dave's analysis in a lucid, low-key and somewhat self-deprecating style.

Another terrific evening at the club - thanks. Dave.
