GM LARRY CHRISTIANSEN SIMUL OVERFLOWING // THE KIDS CAME AND ENJOYED // THE ADULTS WERE BOLD ENOUGH TO PLAY FOR A WIN OR TO SURVIVE

You can see by the smiles on their faces
that GM LarryC is a big hit with the crowd.
Here he faces off with Aaron Brown from Maryland.
Joel Wald, Weaver Adams Co-Champion vs GM LarryC
on the move; up a pawn in a drawish endgame, Joel said
he wanted to try for the win! Gutsy decision! (stay tuned for this result) . . . 
LarryC making a point. The other players await the maestro!
Russian Chess School kids awaits the grandmaster . . . 
LarryC on the move vs this little boy from China. Yes, I
mean from . . . he spoke no English. On vacation, his father told me
that he had participated in chess simuls in his home town of Guangzhou.
Now this is a brave 8 yr old lad!

Mother will take photo of her son. Chinese boy thinking . . . 
The grandmaster is compelled to cogitate. His opponent
is the strongest 9 yr old from Korea/Providence, Rhode Island.

There was never a vacant chair for very long.
A happy summer-time chess event for the whole family.
And Grandmaster Larry Christiansen played masterfully.
Larry will be going to Tromso, Norway for the FIDE Chess World Cup 
Qualifier, beginning August 10th. Let's give Larry a robust
 round of applause for his performances here at South Station so far, 
and wish him good chess by the Arctic lakes
in the land of the Northern Lights . . . 

The next simul will occur on August 27th. Mark your calendars!
