Can you defeat this SECOND GRADER in chess?
Posted by tomlangland on Thursday, May 21 @ 10:32:45 CDT

Samuel Sevian, at age 8, has just become the YOUNGEST EXPERT in the history of chess! In April of this year he achieved a rating of 2001. Now is your chance to take on Samuel and be part of a simultaneous exhibition given by the youngest chess expert ever.

· WHAT: Simultaneous Exhibition by Samuel Sevian
Samuel will take on all comers at the same time, moving quickly from board to board. You will have a chance to think about your next move during the time it takes Samuel to go around the room and return to your board.

· WHERE: Quinlan Community Center Social Room
Address: 10185 N. Stelling Road, Cupertino, CA 95014
Plenty of free parking on site.

· WHEN: SATURDAY, MAY 30 from Noon to 4 pm
Spots will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 11:30. Score sheets will be provided. If you have one, bring your own chess set and board.

· WHO: all chess players welcome (there will be room for spectators as well)

· WHY: to make chess history, and to have a chance to defeat Samuel!

Although this event is free, donations will be greatly appreciated to help Samuel defray the costs of representing the USA at the World Youth Championships in Turkey later this year.
