Chess Train 2013

Without limits

[15.10.2013 00:00:00] - I was preparing an ironic article about the quality of Tyrol’s services but one hippie taxi driver with marguerite in her hair and the performance of Cirque de soleil changed my mind completely. It was show named Quidam - which was probably about the social problems of an unknown stranger in the anonymous world...but I was laughing from the beginning to the end, like during watching the film “Untouchables” and I was staring with child consternation at the acrobatics which was proving that the “impossible” is nonexistent category.

Meanwhile a venison from the neighbouring forests in restaurant situated in Benedictine monastery in Salzburg with a delicious wine (Veltlin) and with a waiter, originally from Berlin, working in Salzburg and speaking Czech. The pub attires also the “quidams” (mean casual passers-by) over 12 centuries already and even me, I could stay there more than just one evening.

The Chess train is without any limits too. There are not only the players from the Europe but also Bissacot Sidnei Coutinho from Brazil or David Moreno from Mexico. The oldest player, Mr. Macura from Zlín, will celebrate in few months his 80´s birthday. And the youngest participant Markéta Folková celebrated her 7 years yesterday.

Today the Chess Train will return to the Czech republic, where Český Krumlov is waiting for us. You can find the actual results here. Complete photogallery here.

The oldest participant of the chess tournament Emil Macura from Zlín made a present to several travellers from the Train by the tresor of Wallachia, slivovice, for which even the world champion Alexander Aljechin was ready to travel to Moravia and play simultaneous games.
