Speed Chess aboard a Train: GM Vlastimil Hort wins Chess Rapid Travelling through Scenic Europe

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

Grandmaster Vlastimil Hort has won the Chess Train Rapid Chess tournament that is held aboard - yes, you guessed it right, but of course - a train! The tournament featured 87 participants this year and the train route went from Prague through Germany and the Austrian Alps for five days, with 11 rounds of rapid chess. Hort was the top seed. 

The event, staged by the Prague Chess Society and Ceské Dráhy, took place from October 11-15 and covered Regensburg (Germany), Innsbruck, Salzburg (Austria), Český Krumlov and back to Prague. 

Complete results can be found at Chess-Results

GM Hort received the glass trophy from the managing director of the Research Institute of the Railways Antonin Blazek. You can find a full photo gallery at the Czech chess website here.
