It didn’t take long, just five days, for the Alisa Melekhina simul being held at the
All the King’s Men Chess Center (ATKMCC) in Pitman, NJ. to sell out. There is,
however, spectator room available.
Stephen Dick, Chief Simul Arbitrator and owner of All the King’s Men said, “ I knew it would sell out fast, I just didn’t think it would be that fast”. Dick attributes the quick sell out to three things: timely and prominent promotion, Alisa’s charming appeal, and upgraded prizes (eNotates & DGT chess clocks) generously donated by Sevan Muradian of the North American Chess Association.
The spectator admission fee is just $3 for ATKMCC members and $5 for non-members. Spectator seating is being done on a first come, frist serve basis. So, get here early. The simul starts at 2:00 PM on January, 31st.
