1. IM Ilyass Msellek plays Rapid/Blitz Simul at ACC
Ilyass Msellek, an International Master from Morocco, will play a rapid chess simul at ACC this evening, Monday June 19, starting at 8:00 PM, for a couple of hours.
Ilyass recently played in our Canadian Transnational Chess Championship, Crown Section. He had a nice performance finishing T17/38 in the Blitz, T11/34 in the Rapid and T14 in the Classic. He finished 16/29 Crown players who played in all 3 events. In total, 63 players participated in at least one Crown section event.
The simul is free for all ACC members and $10+HST ($11.30) for non-ACC members. This is our normal casual play drop-in fee. Several players will simultaneously play Ilyass using a 10|5 rapid time control. Players will be continuously rotated at the end of each round. There may also be some blitz games.
