Caspian Chess Championship to be held in Iran

The 18th International Caspian Chess Championship will kick off in Rasht city, northern Iran, from tomorrow.

Top Chess official of Gilan province Kiyoumars Bayat told IRNA on Thursday that the competition which was delayed due to heavy snow in Northern Iran, will begin from Friday evening in the province’s central city, Rasht, IRNA reported.

The heavy snowfall which started on Sunday evening in different parts of Gilan province and continued until Tuesday caused water and electricity outage in various cities and blocked many of the roads as well as the Rasht-Qazvin freeway.

Almost 900 chess players from Azerbaijan Republic, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Turkey and Turkmenistan have registered to participate in the competition.
