Les résultats seront communiqué en fin de rencontre

Due to the rapidly changing pandemic situation over the past year, tournament organizers have had to quickly transition from face-to-face events to unfamiliar online tournament formats.

However, switching to available online platforms is not always easy for organizers who are often forced to switch to this new format with little practical or moral support. The recent introduction of hybrid chess by FIDE allowing online games to be approved for the ELO FIDE rating, offers totally new perspectives for the future, especially for team events. In response to this new situation, ChessMates International organized a training session on the Tornelo platform recently approved by FIDE. Tornelo is one of the only platforms suitable for organizing hybrid events.
