On November 7, grandmaster Eva Repkova (Slovakia), a member of the Appeals Committee of the Women’s World Champion, gave students of the Ugra Chess Academy a simul.
The multiple-time champion of Slovakia faced ten boys and two girls. The children gave the grandmaster a hard time – the simul went on for two hours and a half.
Ms Repkova won 11 games and drew one against Yaroslav Sukhovershiy. She also noted the performance of Varvara Tsaregorodtseva and Dmitriy Kuznetsov. All participants of the simul received special gifts from the organizers and made a commemorative photo with the grandmaster.
Eva Repkova: “The kids are amazing. They are all between 7 and 10 years old. This is a very nice experience for me. In general, the Ugra Chess Academy is wonderful. This is a perfect place for kids to play, to advance, to study, and to socialize. The Academy has equipment, computer classes, chess boards and clocks. The teachers are great and professional. Atmosphere is very friendly here. I feel happy that there is such a place. I wish every city to have something similar”.
