Particularities: 1) The whole week during the tournament was 30 degrees Celcius (86F) which was very unusual in Estonia this time.
2) All the games of the NCC 2022 Championship were played with 47 DGT electronic boards. Because there were not much of these boards available at the Estonian Chess Federation, more boards had to be borrowed from Latvia and Finland!
3) A new commemorative medal was rewarded for players who have participated in 12 or more NCC editions.
4) To celebrate 20 years of Polish Armed Forces in NATO Chess, an exhibition was set up in the tournament hall during rounds 5 and 6 (30 June 2022). The Polish team presented players and Team Captains with a few souvenirs at the beginning of round 5.
5) Medals "Year of the Woman in Chess" were presented to the 3 female participants of NCC 2022. FIDE Women's Commission was informed about the fact.
6) The Germany Chess team was sponsored by Chessbase. All their opponents got a product from that company. Thank you, Chessbase!
