The 3rd International Open Chess Tournament "Vardaris" that is going to be held from 23rd to 27th of February 2017, is honored to have the national Greek Radio Television S.A. as communication sponsor.
Through E.R.T. broadcasting network, TV and radio, we have for the first time, the unique opportunity for mass promotion.
So, we decided to organize a tournament exclusively for amateur chess players, without rating and free of participation fee, which is going to be held one day before the beginning of 3rd "Vardaris".
A relevant announcement for this "amateur" tournament, that will take place on 22nd of February 2017, will be published in the next days. It will be a five round rapid tournament in which we are happy to invite those who play chess with their friends, those who play chess on the computer, athletes' parents and anyone else that wishes to live a wonderful and festive chess night.
We would like to thank the management of E.R.T. for the support and for giving us this great opportunity.
