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
