Liam Henry Simultaneous

This past weekend the Southside Chess Club was treated with a special guest International Master and Canadian Champion IM Liam Henry. Mr. Liam Henry is one of Canadas top Masters who actively competes in local, national and international tournaments. On Sunday February 23, 2014 seven boards where setup with Liam controlling the black peices on the table. Players ratings raged from 900 to 2000 with a few kids, teens and young adults. The final score for Liam was 6 wins and 1 draw. As part of our donation the club also helped support the Sick Kids hospital with a small donation. Thank you to all the members who came out for a challenge.
