Various parallel events took place during the tournament.

 

The rapid chess tournament has been established! A tournament which is outdoors, on the main street of Paleochora and attracts all the looks! It is no coincidence that during this special day several players come from Chania, just to participate in this league, and the main road literally floodes with chess players and spectators. Despite the late hour - the tournament starts at 11:00 pm and ends at 2 am - 33 teams participated this year, consisting of 175 chess players. Excess of fun, entertainment, relaxation and many smart slogans accompanied by sweets and snacks (sponsored Patisserie Karakatsani) for all participants are some of the characteristics of this evening.
