4.Chess simuls of the Italian women champion U20 WFM De Rosa Mariagrazia and the many times women youth Bulgarian champion WIM Tatyana Plachkinova.


The great hospitality of the people  and the organization made the event very pleasant! The days with two games per day were hard for all players but somehow the beautiful place ( a real paradise!),the crystal blue sea water,the smiles and  the chess passion of people of the island ,compensate it.
