GM Alex Yermolinsky Simul

  On Friday, October 22nd following the traditional Subway catered "Meet & Greet" social, GM Alex Yermolinsky conducted a simultaneous exhibition match against all comers.  Beginning at 7pm, Yermo  faced-off against chess fans off all strengths and experience levels, giving a rare opportunity for these players to experience the royal game when played at the highest level of skill.  One of America's premier players, GM Yermolinsky has claimed the US Championship title TWICE, and won the Philadelphia World Open three times.  For a tournament chess player, there is no greater challenge than to match wits with a GrandMaster of the game.
"Yermo" went a perfect 18-0 in this simul challenge !
