SIMUL with NM Larry Smith on Feb 25!

    2/18 Update: Registration and waitlist are currently full! However, spots may open up at any time — shoot us an email!


On Feb 25, 2019, the TOCC will be hosting a simultaneous exhibition (“simul’) with NM Larry Smith! Larry has been a chess master for over 30 years (with a peak rating of 2312) and is the TOCC’s five-time Club Champion (co-champion in 2014 and 2018).

In this event, Larry will be playing against 16 people at once. This is an excellent opportunity to play a slow game against a master for those who may never face one in a tournament game!

Since there is limited seating in this event, participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis! That means that only the first 16 players who sign up will get to participate.


If you want to participate, reserve your spot right away by emailing us at!

After 16 spots are filled, the next 5 players who sign up will go on a waiting list. They will be next in line to get into the event if there are any cancellations or no-shows.

This event is free of charge. Our recommended rating range for participants is 500-1600.

Once again, there are only 16 spots, so reserve your place now! Hope to see you there!


As a reminder, the club will be closed Mon, Feb 18 for President’s Day.
