During last year’s campaign for the ECU presidency, Silvio Danailov offered to send 3 Grandmasters to Ireland. True to his word, last November, Ivan Cheparinov came and played in the Kilkenny Masters weekender. And now, on October 3rd, ECU President Danailov and GM Veselin Topalov visited to Dublin.
Instead of doing the usual talk and simul, the hosts thought it might be interesting to have a clock simul against the Irish Men’s Team: GM Alex Baburin, IM Sam Collins, IM Alex Lopez and IM Mark Quinn.
The players had two hours for all their moves.
Mark Crowther reports on twitter:
Alex Baburin beats Veselin Topalov in his simul against the Irish team in Dublin Mon 3rd Oct. Match drawn 2-2. Games not yet available.
