This is not the first prize for David in Livigno. During the week, the now Italian chess player (he was born in Luxembourg from an Italian family) has also won the Grand Prix Distillati Mazzetti D’Altavilla, taking home a precious crystal chessboard, whose hand-blown pieces are actually little bottles containing excellent liqueurs.

During the Grand Prix event Sinisa Drazic (Hotel Lanz) got the second place and Castellanos the third one.
