Greece organizes the blitz and rapid world championship for young people.

These are the U14, U16, U18 Rapid (10 minutes) and Blitz (5 minutes) World Youth Championships which will be held at the Rodos Palace Hotel in the fabulous Rhodes island, from 30 April to 5 May this year.

We do not know why this youth world cup has passed a bit on the sly. In fact, although almost 300 players from over 40 different countries have already signed up, there is a scarce presence of players from countries where chess at the youth level is very popular.

There is not a single player representing Russia! For Spain there is only one player and so also for Holland; for the USA only two players while for France they are four. A real shame, right? I wonder why?

For those interested, despite the delay and the request for a surcharge, we attach the document to register:
