Today the I OPEN CHESS MONTESIERRA JEREZ tournament has been held in our Centre with 112 players taking part, a record for the Cádiz circuit.
The tournament was played by the Swiss system of 7 rounds (all players play 7 games and the one with most points wins) with 8 minutes and 3 seconds for each chess player and match, and over 4 hours from 10 am to 2 pm.
The main sponsor was Montesierra, who gave excellent prizes of selections of Iberian produce and also some were raffled among all participants. We are grateful for their support of all sport events where young people are involved.
Chess Master Juan Chacón was proclaimed winner of the Tournament and he was accompanied on the podium by José Manuel Sánchez Ponce from El Puerto in second place and the young International Master Alejandro Pérez from Estepona in third place.
It was a great display of chess, where international masters mixed with amateurs, veterans, school children and very promising players of the future.
