Series of tournaments in Serbia

by Shahid Ahmed - 16/10/2019

Lately Serbia has been frequented by Indians for various round robin tournaments to increase rating and gain norms. Saptarshi Roy became India's 51st GM and Leon Mendonca Luke scored three IM-norms in 17 days early this year at Serbia. This has inspired players from all over the world to flock to Serbia. One of the the many reasons why these tournaments are successful is because it is organized by a chess player GM Sinisa Drazic himself. Drazic sends us a pictorial report of three amateur tournaments held in Serbia where two of them were Scheveningen tournaments and a mini open tournament where you can catch a glimpse of the playing hall and the players.

Two Scheveningen Tournaments and one Mini Open tournament took place in Novi Sad, Serbia from 2nd to 9th October 2019. All these tournaments are organized by GM Sinisa Drazic who is also the General Secretary of International Physically Disabled Chess Association (IPCA).
