A few weeks ago I mentioned that players in or near Chicago had the chance to play English super-GM Mickey Adams in a clock simul. The event has passed (but may happen again next year???), but you can read a short article on the event by Adams himself and download an excellent, much longer report by organizer Daniel Parmet.

Daniel Parmet writes in to announce that he's running a 10-board clock simul with English GM Michael Adams at the Downers Grove Chess Club (near Chicago) on May 23. Quoting Daniel:
Perhaps people traveling for the Chicago Open might be interested in coming a day early to play Adams.
The information is Entry: $90, Time control Game 90, 10 boards first come first serve (4 spots left), 7:30pm Weds May 23rd at Address 200 Village Drive, Downers Grove, IL, 60516
Those wishing to reserve their spots in advance can email Daniel here.
After 8 of 10 rounds, Michael Adams and women's world champion Hou Yifan are tied for first in the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival. Hou managed to beat Le Quang Liem in a tactical slugfest, while Adams drew second-seed Shakhriyar Mamedyarov. Hou and Adams are half a point ahead of 14 other players, including Alexei Shirov, the winner of a spectacular game against Artur Yusupov that may well be my ChessVideos show this week.
