Shirov clock simul in St. Petersburg

Earlier this week Alexei Shirov gave a clock simul in St. Petersburg. The rivals of the famous grandmaster were young students of a school from the Northwestern Federal District. The time control was 90 minutes per game + 10 seconds increment per move. Even under such tough conditions, Shirov managed to win all twelve games. After the session he analyzed all the games in detail, giving advice to the children. You can find some photos at the website of the Russian Chess Federation.

I agree. Well stated.
I have met GM Shirov and though he is not fluent in English, he seemed to be a delightful person, not to mention, "fire on the board".
