Welcome to Luxembourg!

And welcome to the 2nd European Small Nations Individual Chess Championship – FIDE Zone 1.10!

We are taking over from the first Small Nations in Larnaca and have worked hard to give you the same excellent level of organization and hospitality that players, officials and guests enjoyed in Cyprus!

The tournament will run from April 1st to April 11th in Luxembourg-City or simply an der Stad (in the City), the only big city in a small country with a big heart!

May the best player win!
