WAITZKIN SIMUL

Josh Waitzkin was the subject of the book, Searching for Bobby Fischer: The World of Chess, Observed by the Father of a Child Prodigy. Fred Waitzkin wrote this book which was the basis of the critically acclaimed motion picture, Searching for Bobby Fischer. Waitzkin is a 1965 graduate of Kenyon College.

On Wednesday evening April 15, 1998, Fred and Josh Waitzkin spoke at Kenyon College about the nature of their relationship as it was affected by Josh's developing skills and his father's dreams for his success. The differences in treatment of this relationship between the book and the film were also part of the conversation. Josh's mother and sister made the trip to Gambier, too.

Josh, who is now twenty-one, became a national chess master at the age of thirteen and an international master at sixteen. After graduating from the Professional Children's School in New York City, he was awarded the Samford Fellowship by the American Chess Foundation, a two-year fellowship to study chess and compete internationally. Josh is currently ranked as the 31st best player in the U.S.

On Thursday morning, Josh Waitzkin accepted the challenge from twenty chess players in a simultaneous exhibition. Mark Geitz, Johnstown, and Tom Green, Delaware, were the only none Kenyon-related chess players. Josh gave up two draws, one to Jeff Reed and the other to Michael Davis, a Class B over-the-board chess player. Here is Waitkin's game against Davis:

GREEN'S OREGON SIMUL

During the planning of our trip to Oregon this past summer, my mother asked me if I would be willing to do a simultaneous exhibition at the West Linn Senior Citizen Center. I agreed, anticipating that I could meet the challenge of the seniors. Much to my surprise, my mother advertised the event to all of the area chess clubs and an announcement for the event even appeared in The Oregonian. Fortunately, she scheduled it for noon on Tuesday, July 21st, and only one player showed up?! Here is my win against Gary Robinson, a Class A player.
