The following article was published in the 41st year of my chess column in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday 10th June 2013.

World no 2 Levon Aronian (ARM 2813) defeated six of Germany’s top juniors (average 2402) in Meissen scoring three wins and three draws in his first ever clock simultaneous exhibition. Aronian travelled with his partner WIM Arianne Caoili (2219) Australia’s highest rated female player to the Capo D’Orso Open in Sardinia. Caoili scored 6 /6 against opponents rated below 2480 losing only to the top three placegetters.
