The first Fontainebleau chess festival

The week long Festival de Fontainebleau chess tournament which started on 18 July doesn’t feature any Grandmasters or International Masters. While the Open section comprises players with under elo ratings under 2000, competitors in the three closed tournaments – each of which has eight players – have Elo ratings ranging from around 1800 to 2200. But what makes this tournament unique is its unique location and the Covid-19 related health controls that have been put in place here. | Photos: Club d’√©checs de Fontainebleau-Avon
