 The Ushuaia Municipal Sports Institute, in conjunction with the Ushuaia Chess Circle, has organized an   open and online tournament   with the purpose of disseminating and developing chess in homes  . In the context of social and mandatory isolation, this is the  ideal game  to keep your head clear and trained. It is a sport that requires concentration and calculation, and is considered  an activity that favors intellectual development .

Those who do not live in  Ushuaia  may not know that the city has a  great tradition  in this millennial game.  The local Chess Circle is very active and committed . Tournaments, days and even outdoor activities are often organized and managed from this entity with the purpose of “taking sports to the street”.

 About the tournament 

 The online tournament is played every day at 3 pm . The registration link changes all and is disclosed by the Facebook of the  Círculo de Ajedrez de Ushuaia . Consultations may also be made at (2901) 15467964.  Registration is   free and free.  The tournament is played through the  Lichess Platform . Finally, the game pace is 3 minutes plus two seconds and is in the Arena system.

 Sports figures from Argentina and other countries are invited every day . So far outstanding people have been invited such as Diego Flores (Argentine heptacampeon), Milagros Brizzi (Multiple Argentine and South American youth champion), Andrés Aguilar (finalist in the last Argentine championship) and Matías Pérez Gormaz (Former champion of Chile), among many others.

A lot of people have already signed up, joining the various initiatives of the Argentines to  find games to play until the quarantine is lifted . Camilo Gomez, president of the Municipal Sports Institute, said that from the entity will continue to generate activities, games and challenges so that each Ushuaiense can perform and cross right now.

Once the social and mandatory isolation  is over, trophies and medals will be awarded  to the top three places of each tournament.

Do you want to play? The appointment is at 15.
