will take place in knock-out system.
The first four rounds will be of 2 games each. The 5th and 6th round will be

necessary postponement of games. We also stress out that: Postponements will

In the 1st round, we used directed drawn of lots for the Asia and America
zones in order to make things easier for some players because of the
significant difference of time, at least at the beginning of the Championship.
Welcome to the 1st On-Line Chess Championship in
Greece. Good game to all of you!
The Organizing Committee
The submission of applications for participation in the 1st On-Line Chess
Championship in Greece is completed. The chess players that have registered
reach the number of 356 and they come from 35 countries.
In a few days' time the registered participants will receive an email from the
Chief International Arbiter Mr. Vangelis Bardis in order to confirm their
participations and then the schedule of the games will be announced. All our
future announcements will be readable in the official web page of the "1st

We thank each one who has visited our site and has honored us with his/her

We announce with great pleasure that "NATIONAL"
ORGANIZÁÔÉÏÍ SYSTEMS S.A. is the official sponsor of the 1st Internet Chess
Championship in Greece and has offered 2.934 Euros towards the prizes.
We have the pleasure to announce to you the first on-line Championship in Greece
and to thank you for the love you have shown to us so far. The Championship is a
dream we had for many years and has not come true until now. Being aware of the
possibilities the Internet has offered us, we put our faith in and prospected a
website where our favorite game could be played even by people who, in spite of
their love for the game, were too busy to play it. Apollo, the first Chess
Server, came into life three years ago, but could not handle a large number of
chess players. During its first year of test operation (2000-2001) 4,200 chess
players from all over the world have registered and that motivated us to hurry
to upgrade it. At last, with the New Year and, more specifically, toward the end
of the first two months, the first Internet Championship is real.
Evidently, participation applications are free of charge and the deadline for
their submission expires on 15/1/2002. We believe that we will come up to your
expectations for a strong championship of high quality. We, the persons who have
joined efforts to make this happen, hope that by organizing that Championship we
will acquire the necessary experience that will allow us to “swim” into deeper
waters with you.
Finally, we inform you that after the expiration of the deadline for
participation in the games you will be notified of the procedure that will be
followed and the money prizes. This is due to the fact that the exact number of
players is not known yet. For potential changes or news we will let you know by
e-mail or through this home page.
