#326 Bartell Goes +10-1=2 in Simul

FIDE Master Thomas Bartell scored 10 victories, 1 loss and 2 draws at last night's simultaneous exhibition in Kenilworth.

Tom started slowly, yielding half-points to The Kenilworthian, Michael Goeller (Mike was winning) and this reporter (I was = or slightly better). But, at 10:00 p.m., his opponents started falling like dominoes. 33 minutes later, NM Mark Kernighan was the only one left.

Faced with a pawn-down Rook-ending, Tommy valiantly attempted to hold and remain undefeated but Mark was able to get Q vs. R and convert the full point around 12:25 a.m.

Here are all of the games, including the aforementioned 115-move battle, in Java-replay & zipped PGN.

Complete Shiffman-Bartell & corrected Bartell-Cole uploaded 6/3 at 10:37 p.m.
