ESGOO Championship Fest

In order to celebrate the advance of ESGOO 1 to the Meesterklasse (highest national division) at the end of 1997-1998, an evening of festivities was organized. One of our members, the very famous C&W performer Ben Steneker [sp? ;)] played guitar and some players of the first team gave (clock) simul exhibitions against other members.

I played black against one of our German International Masters:

(Don't I look terribly relaxed, as if beating 2400-players on a daily basis. It must have been the heat making me feel lazy.}
