On 03.12.2022 (Saturday) and 04.12.2022 (Sunday), the two last tournaments (A and B) of the “Chess Seasons” took place. The leaders in the individual age groups logically took their place, and the tournament was again officially the first in the lives of some of the chess players. Tournament A (U8 and U10) gathered 46 participants, Tournament B (U12 and U14) – 33 participants.

Here are the triples from “Chess Winter”:

U8: 1. Stoyan Iliev (CC „Varna”) 2. Martin Assenov (CC „Slavia”) 3. Ivona Ruseva (CSKA)
U10: 1. Norair Shahbazyan (SCC “Shumen”) 2. Martin Kyosev (CSKA) 3. Borislav Zhelyazkov (CC „Varna”)

Traditionally, all participants received certificates for their participation in the tournament as a souvenir of the event, and the award ceremony ended with the presentation of the cups to the winners of the „Chess seasons”:

U8: 1. Stoyan Iliev (CC „Varna”) 2. Martin Assenov (CC „Slavia”) 3. Svitlana Russieva (CC “Burgas 64”).
U10: 1. Borislav Zhelyazkov (CC „Varna”) 2. Norair Shahbazyan (SCC “Shumen”) 3. Nikola Neychev (CC „Varna”)

U14: 1. Teodor Tsvetanov (SCC “Spartak Pleven XXI”) 2. Nikolay Valchanov (SCC “Shumen”) 3. Martin Kanchev (CC “Etar”) Throughout 2022, a total of 152 young chess players from Sofia, Pleven, Varna, Ruse, Burgas, Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo, Sliven, Plovdiv,… Ukraine and Belgium participated in the eight tournaments of the „Chess seasons”, in the four categories –
 U8 (41 participants), U10 (52 participants), U12 (39 participants), U14 (20 participants)… which leaves room for many more new competitors in the coming years.In conclusion, participation in as many as possible of the four tournaments during the year increases the chance of prize ranking in “Chess Seasons”.

We express our gratitude to all participants in the tournaments of the „Chess seasons” and wish them to grow up as good and strong chess players… and, of course, we invite them to visit the Chess House in Shumen next year. We wish that the “Chess Seasons” will host new rivalries between even more and even stronger players!

Good luck and see you next time!
