Senior tournaments in 2020

Post by Tim Harding » Tue May 26, 2020 5:20 pm

Thanks to Tim Spanton's recent posting in the Congress Diary section, I have been able to update my Seniors calendar at
http://www.chessmail.com/seniors/Seniors-calendar.html
with the Oberfranken tournament in late June/early July which he discovered.
This tournament appears to be the only Senior event now due to go ahead until at least August. The reason I overlooked it is that it is not included in the German chess federation's senior diary. It is open to players born in 1965 or earlier.

So hop on a Eurostar and head for Bavaria if you are brave enough.

At present the European individual championships are set to go ahead in Poland in October and the Worlds in Italy in November.

For those of us who would have to fly, I don't think 2021 can come soon enough.

The tournament in Bavaria is ongoing with 36 players. The results of the first two rounds have been posted but although round 3 should be on right now, they have not posted the draw online.

For a few Senior tournaments scheduled for later this year in Germany (starting August) and elsewhere in Europe see my Seniors pages:

I don't think it is really wise for Senior players in Britain or Ireland to enter anything that involves flying this year. Maybe younger folks can risk it.
