Kosteniuk visits the Zurich Chess Club

Hello everybody!
On January 13, 2012 I was invited by the famous Zurich Chess Club to give a simul to Swiss VIP’s in the club’s “Savoy Corner”, which appropriately took place in the wonderful Savoy Baur-en-Ville hotel, right at ParadePlatz. After a lecture, in which I commented one of my games to the audience, I gave a simul to 9 players, three of which played 2 games at the same time, so in all I played 12 games. I won all my games except one draw, which I made with the organizer of the event, Mr. Christian Issler. You can watch photos of the event in the gallery and at the end of the post some of my personal sightseeing photos taken the next day in Zurich.

Below are some of my personal sightseeing photos I took the next morning in Zurich, not far from ParadePlatz. While it was a little cold, I had a wonderful walk in the beautiful Zurich city center. By the way, it was the third time I gave a simul at the Hotel Savoy in Zurich, have a look at the photos of those events of 2004 and 2005.
