Nigel Short & CJ de Mooi – second tour

Due to the tremendous success of the simultaneous displays and lectures by GM Nigel Short and ECF President CJ de Mooi (see below), another longer tour has been planned.
This will run from 15th-27th October, and will take in new venues and cities.
If you’re interested in hosting one of these very popular events, please contact CJ on president@englishchess.org.uk for details as soon as possible – reservations have already been made and availability is very limited.
The usual format is a 30-board simul by Nigel, followed by him going through one of his past games. Then CJ will give a talk, and the event finishes with a Q&A session by both Nigel and CJ. Many prizes will be on offer, and this time there will be something extra.
Due to Nigel’s terrific unbeaten score of +168 =9 in February, a very special prize will be offered to the first person to defeat him in October, so you may want to get in your bid for one of the earlier days.
This will be a great national tour by one of the world’s most famous players. Don’t miss your chance to be part of it!
