Cool chess train tournament video!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Between October 14 and 18 a chess train tournament was held in five different countries. The trip went to five beautiful Central-European cities; the chess was rapid (25 minutes on the clock for each person, no increment). The train left from Prague on Friday, October 14th at 10 am and on the way to Vienna the first 3 rounds of the tournament were played. In the afternoon and evening the players, accompanying persons, organisers and sponsors could enjoy the Austrian capital, and stayed there in a hotel. On Saturday morning the train continued to Budapest, and on Sunday morning everyone travelled further to Bratislava! On Monday the train was headed to Krakow and from there it went back to Prague on Tuesday. Here is a nice video of the event.
