Nigel Short to Give a Simultaneous Exhibition at the KL International Chess Festival

This year, with his participation in the Thailand Open (as advisor to the organising Bangkok Chess Club), Grandmaster Nigel Short, former World Championship Contender, many time Commonwealth Champion, and the current English Champion will visit Malaysia as a guest of the KL Open 2010!

Short who is scheduled to arrive on 9 April via Bangkok from Europe has agreed to conduct a simultaneous exhibition at 4 p.m. on Saturday 10 April (the next day).

The simultaneous exhibition is limited to a maximum of 20 places (we have increased the number to meet expected demand) and seats are priced at RM 500 each on a first come first serve basis and of course those already playing in the KL Open interested will receive a 50% percent discount!

For the best possible experience, we will limit spectators and participants will have their score sheets signed by (and their photo taken with) the most famous grandmaster ever to grace a local chess tournament.

Together with our other VIPs, the media and special guests, the participants in this exhibition will also be invited to join the dinner function planned to be held immediately after (where their questions may be also directed to this legend of the game).

Any enquiries and your registrations should be directed to KL Open 2010 Organising Secretary Peter Long at peterlong@aol.asia.
