It has been confirmed today that Topalov will be giving a simul in Edinburgh on 29th April.

The venue and time have still to be confirmed.

The fee will probably be £25.

If anyone is interested please contact me at <!-- e --><a href=""></a><!-- e --> to be put on the circulation list.
what is going on? Have I been transported to a parallel universe where Scotland is a former soviet state?!

How did you pull this one off Alex?

Next you'll be telling me Mike Hanley is Pime Minister and Andy Muir Foreign Secretary!
Nothing to do with me really. Danilov is touring various ECU member nations and bringing Topolov with him. Andy Howie has done all the spade work.

Seems too good an opportunity to miss.
Ooh I'll play, this sounds great! Hope I have nothing else on that day. Can you please mark me down for a place Alex? Big Grin

What will be the rule on toilet visits during the game? Will he be mad if I come out of the toilet with a usb cable hanging from my pocket? ;P
Latest update
It now looks likely that the event will be held with the following timetable.

Sunday 29th April
3.15pm Player arrival
3.45pm approx Simul starts
9pm Play ends (if still in progress)

The intended venue is the Scottish Parliament but Edinburgh Chess Club will kindly provide the venue if this proves impossible.

Places will be drawn by lot (in groups) from those who have indicated an interest by Saturday 21st. Entry fee is £25. All money raised will go towards the Sensory Board fund.
Looks excellent! Hope to be there.
