April 10th Christiansen Simul Recap

And so, another simul was held at South Station, and once again, it was quite the scene. We at the Boylston love introducing new people to the world of tournament chess, and there's nothing like the rush hour crowds at South Station watching a three-time US champion play over two dozen people at once.
Once again, over 25 games were played, with new challengers coming in as games ended. GM Christiansen endured one loss and one draw, winning the rest of his games. The loss was to Nathan Smolensky, a very strange fellow who likes to refer to himself in the third person while writing blog posts. The draw?

Welcome back, Harold!

Nice going, Nathan and Harold!

I gather the summary of results means Larry's rook sacrifice stopped Jesse Nicholas' streak of wins....
