Italy/Salento International Chess Open 2016
Hello chess players,
I'd like to share with you my experience in Italy that I had! I was in the country from May 15-31 and visited many cities like Rome, Pisa, Florence and more. My first international tournament (since October 2013) was held in Gallipoli, Italy during the dates May 21-28. 9-round event where I played in the top section which consisted of ~15-20 titled players. I finished the tournament with 3.5/9 (5 draws, 3 losses,1 win) and gained 15 elo points.

Salento International Chess Open is a well organized tournament but is also the perfect place to relax by the Sea. Chess/Vacation - the best type of chess tournament, in my opinion!
Have a great day! Hope you win many games today.
