Simultan has always fascinated spectators: "One against all" is the most used motto and wherever it is organised, you are sure that even the most distracted and hasty passer-by will stop for a few minutes to take a look, to try to understand how it is possible that an already difficult game against a single player can be played against many.

An exceptional simultaneist considered by the chess world to be the best Swedish player ever, he obtained exceptional results from the mid-seventies to all of the eighties, and it was he who inflicted the first defeat as world champion on Anatoly Karpov at the Milan Tournament of 1975. He also plays correspondence specialties in which he reached the first position in the international ranking.

And yesterday evening in Piazza della Bollente, the most fascinating of Acqui Terme, the simultaneous performance by GM Ulf Andersson took place outdoors.

Fourteen players lose 
Six players draw:
  • Cesare Predomini
  • Ugo Cattaneo
  • Federico Venturino
  • Andrea Aimone
  • Andrea Zavattero
