5th Intercultural Chess Tournament

 

5th Intercultural Chess Tournament Satranç Club 2000

It is already 50 years ago: On 30th October 1961, the Federal Republic of Germany and the Turkish Republic joined the agreement for the recruitment of labours. In remembrance to this anniversary, there has been many miscellaneous activities all over Germany. The intercultural Chess Club “Satranç Club 2000“ is very experienced in these kind of events, not least because they have already organized the tournament for the 40th anniversary 10 years ago. After this, they have organized many other intercultural chess events.

The Satranç Club has been founded in the year 2000 from turkish originated members and now, many other nations are part of the club. Hence the club is realising the FIDE motto “Gens una Sumus” (We are one family).

On Tuesday, the 1st November 2011, the Club organized the 5th run of its consuetudinary Intercultural Rapid Chess Tournament, which became an inherent part of the cologne tournament calendar. The Turkish consul general, Mr. Mustafa Kemal Basa, donated additional material prizes for the tournament winners. In addition to this, a representative from the sociology faculty of the Cologne University joined the tournament location to collect information for the study “Migrants in Germany”.

In the previous week, it was the first time that an active member of the Satranç Club, Mr. Sava Gavrilov, died. The tournament began with a minute’s silence in memory of him.

At the end the tournament, the tournament leader Izzet Yilmaz announced the tournament result, which has been the closest run in this tournaments history:

The tournament winner from 2008, IM Eugen Haskelman, won again. This time with a very slight advantage of 2 Buchholz points to the runner-up representative of the hosting club, Alexander Johannes and to the third Alex Peters. Dr. Thomas Schunk became the senior award and the always positive and upbeat 13 years old Muhammed Enes Osta (also a member from Satranç Club) became the most successful youth player.

The president Güven Manay and the tournament leader Izzet Yilmaz presented the prices (cups, certificates and material prices) to the winners with many thanks to all organizers and helpers.

One week later, the club hosted the Cologne preliminary competition to the German Chess cup (Dähnepokal), which has been won the first time from Alex Johannes, which means the first time from a member of the Satranç Club.

The Satranç Club (Satranç is the Turkish word for chess) is open to chess companions from all nations, all strengths of play and age groups. The club is providing a pleasant and familiar ambience and is located in the center of cologne.
