Welcome to 6th "Vardaris"

Welcome to 6th "Vardaris"

2020 has just arrived and for one more year, "Vardaris" is blowing!

Chess Club SACH of Thessaloniki and Cooperativa “Allostropos” have the pleasure and honor to organize, for 6th consecutive year, the International Chess Tournament “Vardaris”.

The unique playing venue of Holiday Inn Hotel in the center of the city, in combination with our good mood and our will for an even better tournament are the basic ingredients that attract every year chess players from every corner of Greece, as well as all over the world.

This year "Vardaris" is ...transatlantic, as GM Leandro Krysa from Argentina and Brazilian GM Santiago Yago De Moura are coming to bring us "chess air" from Latin America!

We are also delighted to welcome GM Mihail Marin from Romania, three times National Champion and one of the most successful authors of chess books.

Finally, it's worth mentioning the Scandinavian charge! Twelve strong teenage chess players from Norway will join us, accompanied by their trainer GM Kjetil Aleksander Lie!

Thank you all for your support over the years...

Welcome to 6th Vardaris!!!
