Chess Tournament

Chess will always be fashionable. That’s why we are happy to invite you to the first chess tournament at The Mall. It is organized in partnership with chess club Levski and will be held on the 11th of May.

The tournament is open for men and women without age restriction.

The only limitation is the play time – everyone has only 5 minutes per game and additional 3 second per move.

The games start at 10:30 and end at 16:30. This is a Swiss-system tournament in 11 rounds.

The chess tournament is special not only because it’s the first at The Mall, but because the world-record holder grandmaster Kiril Georgiev will be our guest.

The location is level -2 in front of the elevators. It is perfect for watching the chess battles. If you want to not only watch, but play as well, you need to register not later than 8th of May by sending an e-mail to shahklub@abv.bg or calling 0885 80 60 60.

There’s no registration fee and there are plenty of awards.
