Great news everyone! GM Evgeny Shtembuliak, current World Under 20 Champion, will play against one representative for each team, then 40 players in total.
The simul will be played on, and is organized in collaboration with, chess.com which for the occasion will be giving away 5 diamond memberships! The event will also be broadcast live and commented by the World Champion on his Twitch channel: m.twitch.tv/gmshtemb/ Please follow him!
The event will take place on Thursday 14 May at 5 pm CET
To participate, each Team Leader must send me, at least by Monday, the name of the rapresentative and his username on chess.com.
Please Note! Team Leaders are also asked to read the following post.
We have written the rules, everyone can see them here: rentry.co/worldwide-junior-chess
Please follow them.
Since there have been some troubles on Wednesday, any team that breaks the rules, letting, for instance, brand new accounts play or lining up players already reported by lichess as cheaters, will be downgraded to the last group, after a week of forced stop, and won't be able to join the simul. We're doing a great job all together so please, let's help each other!
Thank you very much for everything you've done until now.
Hello everyone, Saturday was a big success with 690 players! New links and lineups are ready, I'm just waiting for everyone to confirm their participation before adding all the teams. Thank you all for your help!
