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

Hi everyone,

Yes, the European team chess championship has begun in the Olympic Hall in Porto Carras, Greece today. A total 38 teams in the Open and 28 teams in the Women Section are participating. Players cannot leave the playing area and facilities, and that they can discuss draw offers with their captains only in the presence of the match arbiter. There will be additional arbiters overseeing the playing hall, analysis room and bar to prevent any suspicion of irregular players’ behavior. A doping control might take place during the event, at the discretion of the FIDE Medical Commission.

Here are two videos via from the opening ceremony and the first round. Enjoy. You can access the official website at this link.
