Chess Train 2013

Train chess in the chess train

[10.10.2013 00:00:00] - We are leaving tomorrow. What seemed to be just science-fiction five years ago is reality now. The third year in the row the Chess Train will go throw central Europe.

The nice pun in the title I used is from David Navarra, the best Czech chess player. In the Chess Train not just players in tournament, who can hope for playing with such as legendary grandmasters as Vlastimil Hort and Ján Plachetka, will train chess, but also their non-playing companions can. For them there will be a crash course in chess basics for quickly understanding beginners.

Let´s return to grandmaster´s Navara kind ideas once again. We asked his quiz question (Which are or were the three longest international tournaments ever?). The answer is that we are not completely sure, but the tournament in the Chess Train will definitely be one of the longest. This year we will spend 1244 km on our way.

As a competitor in the length of a tournament we can theoretically count the tournament that took place on ocean liner Piriapolis which was used for chess players to get to chess Olympiade in 1939 in Buenos Aires. But according to narration of Czech master Karel Opočenský, there were just blitz tournaments and the boats weren´t going fast. So I guess we can say that the three longest tournaments ever were the three annuals of the Chess Train.
