Re: Topalov Simul - George Neave - 11-04-2012

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!


Re: Topalov Simul - Alex McFarlane - 11-04-2012

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.

Re: Topalov Simul - amuir - 24-04-2012

will Topalov agree to play titled players ? Karpov refused in 1984

Andy Muir,
Topalov played Baburin and Sam Collins in a simul in Dublin last year
