About a month before the start of the tournament, but be careful, registrations close soon, on May 27th, there are around 80 participants from 15 NATIONS!! And there are many titled players even though there is no invited. 

We believe that participation will increase further in the coming weeks and in this regard, we highlight some strong points of the Event. 

A large and comfortable playing venue, surrounded by greenery. 

One round a day which allows you to play in total tranquillity and also visit the town and the surrounding area. 

The possibility of having up to a bye with half a point and not zero. Formula that can be useful for those who intend to play while not staying in nearby hotels. 

There will be two evening blitz tournaments and a tasting of local wines organized by the Regional Enoteca. 

In Piazza Bollente there will be a simultaneous of the M.I. and former Italian champion Duilio Collutiis. 

Finally, we would like to point out various agreements with pizzerias in the area for a lunch or dinner at very reasonable prices. 

Naturally in the center of Acqui there are also typical restaurants, winery, wine bars, etc. 

See you soon on June 8th!!!

GM Oleg Romanishin

There are two months left from the registration deadline and two and a half months from the start of the tournament, june 8, the International chess open Acqui Terme has all ready reached about 50 players from 9 Federation. 

Among the most interesting names is the Ukrainian GM Oleh Romanyšyn, a great friend of Turin and Arco, winner of important tournaments since the mid-70s. For those who want to know more. 


And then it's nice to see Alberto Pulito from Turin return to the chess competition. Alberto won 4 Italian junior titles and took part in 4 World Championships and 2 European Championships (all in the junior category). He represented Italy with Elena Sedina at the Mediterranean Games and was called up twice to the Italian teams present at the Mitropa Cup and as a member of Italia 3 at the 2006 Turin Olympiad. 

See you in Acqui Terme.
