British Chess Champion, Mickey Adams, is Coming to Nottingham! This is Your Chance to Meet, and Even to Play, One of History’s Greatest On Saturday, September 17th, at 1pm, come join 24 other Nottingham chess fans, including local prodigy 13yo Jonah Willow, simultaneously take on Mickey Adams, the greatest British chess player of all time. This is your chance to play one of the greats in a simultaneous chess exhibition! The famous and popular chess Grandmaster, Mickey Adams, is coming to Ludorati to take on all comers – all at once! Mickey has been England’s top player since 1999 and was once ranked #4 in the world. Just last month, Mickey again won the (2016) British Championship, for the fifth time! A Grandmaster since the age of 17, Mickey has throughout his exciting career beaten four world champions: Magnus Carlsen, Viswanathan Anand, Vladimir Kramnik, and Anatoly Karpov. His tricky maneuvering style has inspired Kasparov to nickname Mickey “The Spiderman.” Don’t worry too much about winning or losing, just come to have fun. This is your chance to be able to say that you have played the best, and to have your photo taken with Mickey Adams. Even if you are just curious, come spend the afternoon and watch as chess history is made in Nottingham. Ludorati’s great food, coffee, milkshakes, and artisan wines & beers are also available! PLACE: Ludorati Board Game Café, 72 Maid Marian Way, Nottingham

I've entered to play in this. I'm working on the principle that Micky will be exhausted by playing
 in the Olympiad, and travelling from Baku. Any other takers?
