World Amateur Chess Championship 2015 in Greece April 13

Hello chess blog friends, amateur chess is big in its own rights around the world and is not applied to chess players rated below 2000. The latest tournament announcement by FIDE is about the World Amateur Chess Championships for 2015.

The World Amateur Chess Championships will be held in Porto Carras, Halkidiki, Greece on the northern coast of the Aegean Sea. The dates are 13 April (arrivals, technical meeting) to 22 April 2015 (departures). Entitled to participate are all players from national chess federations who have a FIDE rating below 2000 at the start of the event and have had such a rating for at least 2 years prior to 1 January 2015. They must not hold any title above CM (WCM).

The games will take place in the conference center of the 5-star Porto Carras Grand Resort, on the Sithonia peninsula of Halkidiki, 100 km south of Thessaloniki airport. Porto Carras is an excellent holiday destination, surrounded by pure natural beauty and sandy beaches on the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
