GM Yasser Seriawan Simultaneous Chess Exhibition


Photo source: Wikipedia.com

Grandmaster Yasser Seriawan was down in Malaysia in August 2008 for a short vacation. While here, GM Seriawan managed to squeeze in a simultaneous chess match where he played against 30 local chess players. The match went on for more than 5 hours and at the end, Seriawan emerged victorious in winning the overall match. Just for the record, this was his second visit to Malaysia.
