Djerba International Chess Festival supports the chess marathon in France

With some friends (Ernesto, Marwan and GM Sébastien FELLER) from the Metz club, we are organizing a free 24-hour blitz marathon on May 23 and 24, for the benefit of the Mercy hospital in Metz for the fight against COVID-19.

Here is the tournament link:

Being still in the red zone, emergencies are always overwhelmed there and it seems necessary to us, at a small level, to make a modest financial contribution, testifying above all to our recognition and our gratitude for the whole team of caregivers. So make the choice to offer this Blitz Marathon and make it open to everyone and free!

In addition, thanks to international solidarity from the community of chess players, we offer simply exceptional prizes to be won depending on the ranking, which will be won throughout the tournament (full list of prizes to come): Invitations (partial or total) for the London Chess Classic Open, the Open in Djerba (Tunisia), the Kilkenny Chess Congress (Ireland), the Open in Porticcio (Corsica), the semi-rapid of Echternach (Luxembourg) , many online courses with French titled players, months of premium chess24 subscriptions, books and chess equipment to win, etc ... The tournament will be streamed, soon more information to come concerning the full list of our sponsors and the few "guest-stars" who will participate in the tournament;)

To support Mercy Hospital, we count on everyone's solidarity on this page: Every donation counts, there is no small donation!

Here you can directly and in one click, participate in this prize pool. All payments are secure.
