    Bumping up with the update on the simul:

    Nicholas will have a school exam on Dec 17 and he can not participate in the event. FM Mike Ivanov will replace him for the simul and he also will play in a rapid tournament. Mike is shy of couple rating points to get the IM title.

    While we have several cancellation due to the rescheduling, the registration list is still long - 50 players. ( )
