 Event Spotlight: Christiansen Simul
 Nathan Smolensky
  April 2014

Collins is one of many players, young and old, novice and expert, to partake in Larry Christiansen’s South Station simuls. Now entering its third year, the event has no entry fee and no registration requirement, though at peak times it can be near full.

Sponsored by Biederman Redevelopment Ventures and the Boylston Chess Foundation, these events take place right in the heart of Boston’s South Station. Winners receive a Boylston free entry coupon, valid for all their events with the exception of round robins and memorial tournaments. Players are welcome to play multiple games in a simul, and passes are allowed, within reason. The low barrier to entry and casual tone make this one of the most beginner-friendly chess events around.

The simuls are held on the second Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise specified, from 5:00 P.M. until 7:00, with new games starting until 6:30.
