A small simul

I played a simul with 15 minutes time control against 4 players. I like to play simuls. I give possibility for many players to play with a master and also it gives me good challenge.

I played 2 nice games.

This game was a good example how to make a good pawn exchange to make weak pawn for the opponent. I played a2-a4 to exchange pawns and then a6 was a good target. I won it and then the endgame was easy. I created a passed pawn and pushed it.

In this game the king were on the opposite side. I made a pawn storm to exchange pawns to open files to attack the king. Later I was able to make a winning attack on the dark squares.
