The Family Chess Tournament in Odessa

The Family Chess Tournament in Odessa


On the 11th September 2021, The Family Chess Tournament, organised by GM Natalia Zhukova and the city chess federation, took place in Odessa.

It was one of events from the Day of Physical Culture and Sports. This is celebrated in Ukraine every year on the second Saturday of September. For each of the 20 teams, two members of the same family made moves one after each another in sequence. All hints were forbidden! There were five rounds with a time control of 10+5.
