55th International Chess Festival - In Memoriam Peter Burri
Fifteen tournaments planned: a new record!
Last year, the final list of participants for our main event (GMT) could be announced only 48 hours before the official opening of the Festival. This year, it is four months in advance that we can present our elite line-up! The organizers are playing the renewal card after two years where everyone has been strongly impacted by the health crisis. In the hope of a definitive end to the crisis, they are offering chess fans a range of no less than fifteen different tournaments this summer! Also noteworthy is the introduction of an attractive prize money for amateurs who participate in the classical Open (ATO or MTO) and in minimum in two of the daily tournaments (960, QRT, QBT).
