Bartell Simul Postponed to May 29th

Just a quick note to pass along the news that FIDE Master Tommy Bartell has postponed his planned simultaneous exhibition at the Kenilworth Chess Club (see my previous post) until May 29, 2008. (He is going to play in a North America FIDE master invitational event which will take him out of town on the 15th.) I plan on attending and I hope to see some of the West Orange regulars there! I will get an update on the ongoing quads from TD Charlie Hart and see if I can post a mid-point, or "half-time" report on this double round robin event this weekend. If anyone has games or commentary on the event please let me know.

Best regards,

Glen Hart
