  1. GM Gergely Szabo gave a simultaneous against 19 players : 16 wins, 2 draws and one loss (vs.James Danaher) in St.Michaels Chess Club (9 Lower Cecil Street,Limerick City) on Thursday November 1st.
    The draws were agreed with Mr. Austin Reed (St.Michaels Sporting Club chairman) and Jeffrey Alfred (Adare Chess Club). So the only one who won was James Danaher from Shannon Club.
    The lecture title was : “Cutting your opponent counter-play”.
    GM Gergely Szabo is the captain and coach of the Romanian women team (5th in the World Olympiad 2012, Istambul).
    In the previous month, on Thursday October 11th , in St.Michaels Chess Club another Romanian Grand Master gave a simultaneous to 18 players and the GM won all the games.

    Boris Spassky was invited to Ireland by Kilkenny Chess Club to celebrate the clubs 21st birthday.
    He gave three simuls, one in Kilkenny organised by ourselves on 23/03/1991 and two in Dublin organised by Eamon Keogh. Not having thirty players in the club to play against him Kilkenny invited back all former players to participate.

    The result as I remember was +22 =8

    Draws were attained by Liam Brady, Sean Bradley,Ciaran Sharkey,Paud O Reilly,Maurice Buckley and Trevor Hunter et al.
