On 7.10.2023, under ideal playing conditions, the tournaments of the “Chess Seasons” series, in their autumn edition, were held in the Chess House of SCC “Shumen”, and in the yard in front of it. A total of 72 young chess players participated in both tournaments.

According to the regulations, everyone received certificates of participation, the first five in each age – commemorative prizes, and the first three – medals – all presented by the executive director of SCC “Shumen” IM Atanas Dimitrov. We congratulate Ege Esmer and Velin Simeonov for their first places, as well as all our other pupils, some of whom almost missed out on a higher prize ranking such as Teodor Georgiev, Ivan Pisev, Samuil Borisov. We remind them that hard work and persistence in training is well rewarded, as their teammates showed them. Once again, we express our gratitude to the guests of the club from the already traditional Ruse, Varna, Sliven, Razgrad and Targovishte, for respecting us with their presence and their game, and we invite them to the next tournament of the Series, “Chess Winter”, on 2.12.2023.
