Vasylyshyn Memorial -2010! Tradition is alive!
Good tournament is traditional one! What a pleasure it is to play for example in Cappelle la Grande or Pardubice! But Lviv isn't an exception too! Facing the troubles and problems we bring our tradition through the time and are happy to announce the 7th Lviv Chess Festival "Vasylyshyn Memorial" that will take place in Lviv in period of 23 November - 1 December. This year we continue last year tradition (and also tradition of our first tournaments!) and hold 2 GM round robins - men and woman one! Here you can find regulations for both events!
