The third international interuniversity chess tournament Interuniversity III was held on the Lichess online platform, in which more than 700 people from different countries participated. The organizer was the chess club named after M. M. Botvinnik SPbPU.

The initiative to hold the tournament belongs to Polytechnic chess students. Several years ago, the guys noticed that similar large-scale competitions for students did not exist, and decided to try their hand as organizers. Judging by the warm feedback from the participants, the polytechnics did everything at the highest level!

We had to do a lot of preparatory work, it was difficult, but we did it successfully. We tried to make maximum use of the functionality of the gaming platform lichess.org,” said Pavel Martynov, head of the SPbPU chess club.

Students from 62 educational institutions from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Kenya, South Africa, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia competed for victory. The participants fought among themselves non-stop for two hours: the next game began immediately after the end of the current one. In total, the guys played over 4,700 games and made 336 thousand moves.

The best result was shown by the chess club of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation. The team from Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics took second place. Students of Tomsk Polytechnic University received third place. The SPbPU team took 13th place.

We plan to hold the next tournament in April, we hope to unite even more participants from different countries: more than a thousand people,” shared Pavel Martynov.
