Profession Chess Player

European Team Chess Championship is ready to start

Here in Crete is arrival day for the chess players and their coaches, so the most common profession that one can see in the hotel registration form is “chess player”. We already have seen the teams from Georgia and Armenia around the pool, the guys of Azerbaijan, Montenegro, Finland, Israel, Sweden. The weather is wonderful and those who were lucky enough to arrive early on the beautiful island are already on the beach.

Tonight at 22:00 is the captains meeting and tomorrow is the opening ceremony. We will be there and give you all the details, as well as photos.
