GM Davorin Kuljasevic in the European Parliament

Europchess

GM Davorin Kuljasevic was invited by Chess Club Europchess to deliver a chess lecture and a simultaneous exhibition inside the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on 15th September 2014.

The invitation came from the famous Chess Club Europchess, founded in 1972 under the official name “cercle d’échecs des Communautés européennes C.E.C.E”. Such invitations have been a tradition since 1973 when GM O’Kelly delivered a simultaneous exhibition. Former World champions Garry Kasparov and Veselin Topalov are among the many Grandmasters who have accepted the challenge.

Croatian GM Davorin Kuljasevic delivered a one-hour lecture, followed by three-and-a-half-hour simultaneous exhibition against Europchess members on 24 boards with a final score 18-6 (15 victories, 6 draws and 3 losses) in his favor.
