John Curtis FIDE Master - March 2008

                                                        

John Curtis took on all comers - 12 (the same number as October last year, though many different faces this time - a light load for the champ who has a) been NSW lightning champ over ten times and b) set a Guiness record for the most blitz games (many years ago)

John generously allowed his opponents choice of colour.

Score (as it was in October - a few players playing 2 games ) - 15 : 0.

At the same time last year John also ran a Simul too
