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

Hello everyone,

The intercultural Chess Club “Satranç Club 2000“organized the 7th Intercultural Rapid Chess Tournament in Cologne, Germany. Half of the proceeds have been donated to the Children of Hope Association, which helps impoverished children on the street in Istanbul, in cooperation with the Sister Cities Association of Cologne and Istanbul. Turkey’s Ambassador to Cologne Hüseyin Emre Engin attended the opening of the tournament, expressing his support for such events.

The Satranç Club was founded in the year 2000 by members of Turkish origin and now, many other nations are part of the club, thus realizing the World Chess Federation (FIDE) motto “Gens una Sumus” (We are one family). Istanbul and Cologne have been sister cities since 1997. (Hurriyet Daily News)
