Global Chess Festival History
Chess can be a sport, experience, educational method, special connection or the common language. Therefore we believe that different generations may find something in common in chess. The Aquaprofit-Polgar Chess Festival in 2007, hosted the first 100 board simultaneous chess exhibition with the Olympic Champion Polgar sisters. Over the years, the annual Polgar Chess Festival has grown into a prestigious event in Budapest, Hungary in various locations, including the Palace of Arts and recently at the Buda Castle. Participants of every kind enjoy year after year the celebration of chess, from celebrities, sportspeople, artists, scientists, businesspeople to chess fans and – above all – children. "The passion for the game is the link between generations that teaches both young and old perseverance, logical thinking and respect."

If a draw is agreed before the completion of 30th move, the player who offered the draw will be given a loss in that round irrespective of tournament situation.
