Ter Sahakyan wins Vergani Cup le Terrazze
Quick 1-Minute Summary
The traditional Xmas holiday period witnesses numerous tournaments featuring nine rounds in 5 days (implying 4 double–round days). Curiously, the players seem not to mind, the reasoning I suppose is that you can play in one tournament after another while still on your holidays.
The Festival Le Terrazze (Italy) ran between January 2nd and January 6th. Four double round days, time control of 90 minutes to finish the game (plus 30′). The top section saw 42 participants, including 13 GM’s, 13 IM’s and 10 M. Prizes: 1,000 euros, 800 euros, etc.
