1st Joint EU and NATO online blitz tournament 29 Dec 2021

By the Chairman
24 January 2022 - The winner of the 1st Joint EU and NATO online blitz tournament is Cpt. Dariusz SYCZ. The participation of almost 30 players on Lichess, 29 Dec 2021, gives hope to continue the project. The main goal to get started has been successfully achieved. :-) Moreover, the competition offered a good chance to Albanian and Czech soldiers to show up. All veterans are welcome, too.

Some players think that a match NATO Chess vs. Europchess (for example on 10 boards) would be more interesting. Please give your feedback to your Team Captains since the matter will be discussed at the nearst IMCC Meeting.
