The 6th Paleohora Open Chess Tournament took place on 19-26th June at the Municipality of Kandanos – Selino Community Centre, in Paleohora, Crete, Greece.

Russian Grandmaster Andrey Rychagov is obviously enjoying Crete as he won the tournament for the second year in a row. Rychagov emerged clear winner after concluding the event with 7,5/9 points, leaving the chasing pack of ten players half a point behind.

In 2012 Rychagov took the winner’s trophy after edging the Indian GM Ganguly Surya Shekhar on tie-breaks.

202 players from 21 federations, including 16 Grandmasters, took participation in the event. The total prize fund was 7000 EUR.
