GM David Howell Simul

GM David Howell returned to Harrow Chess Club for the annual simul where he took on thirty-nine members and guests. To add a twist this year, clocks were used with David having 90 minutes against each opponent’s 60 minutes. This timing meant he had less than two and a half minutes average thinking per game, including walking (running!) between boards. The final result for David was 31 wins, 5 draws, and 3 losses – all on time. A memorable evening which also raised £100 for the Colin Crouch Fund.. PHOTOS
