Ben Finegold and Alan Anderson
Chess Lecture and Simul
Ben Finegold leaves Arizona today to go back to Michigan. Before he did that, he gave a lecture and simul, which started promptly at noon. The event was held at Abstrax, one of the sponsors of the camp.
There were 18 participants in the simul including a few Experts and Class A players. Ben scored 17.5 out of 18.
Here is Ben’s game against Josh, a talented junior in the state of Arizona.
