GAMES

Most of the games are being typed based on video recordings (there are only 6 games per round registered by e-boards).
It is a lot of (hand)work. Our apoligies that the games can be seen with some delay.

Rapid


Blitz

The games of the blitz tournament will be published (some days) after the tournament.
You can see already some games (3 per round for each tournament) which were live broadcasted
