Dear chess friends,

You are most welcome to the V Balkan amateur chess festival that will take place for the first time in the beautiful town of Vidin - one of the pearls on the Danube!

After helding the festival for 4 years in Belogradchik we've decided that it's time to bring the participants in the ancient Vidin and set up the playhall in one of the most beatiful buildings of the town - the art gallery!

We've also increased the number of days of the tournament to 9 in order to have enough time to prepare or do some of things prepared for you, such as: boat trip on the Danube princess ship; free master class by GM Delchev; team and individual blitz tournament; trip to Belogradchik.

... and broadened the rating limit to 2300 as to allow to even more amateur players to join!

The next amateur tournament in Bulgaria, we strongly recommend is Georgiev Kesarovski Memorial 6-14.09.2014 in Sunny Beach!


Its chess, fun and tourism all in one.
