Problème d’échecs quotidien
Gambit’s Stefan Maltezeanu represented Luxembourg at the World Junior Chess Championship in Delhi, India, from 14 to 26 October 2019.
Stefan acquired valuable experience, scoring 4.5 points amidst strong international competition after allowing more than one lucky escape to his titled opponents. The title in the open section went to GM Evgeny Shtembulyak (2577) from Ukraine, while in the girls section the winner was WIM Polina Shuvalova (2412) from Russia.

Gambit’s Umberto Cerasi clinches the title in Bettembourg scoring 6/7 ahead of Stanislas Loiret (Metz) and Steve Dishman (Gambit Bonnevoie).
Despite sharply reducing his tournament activity, Gambit’s GM Vitaly Kunin proved his strength once again at the high-level Eurasia Open Cup held in Ekaterinenburg (Russia) from 31 July to 9 August 2019.
Vitaly scored 7.5 points out of 9 to get the 2nd place behind GM Sargsyan from Armenia, topping almost 200 participants, including 23 GMs and 19 IMs. Top seed and former Russian champion GM Evgeny Alekseev is found on place 11 of the final standings.
Chess is a stimulating game for any mind. It requires self-control, management of emotions, courage and creativity. Importantly, it helps develop analytic thinking and logical reasoning.
Chess Club Gambit Bonnevoie offers chess courses for young players and adults. More details.
On Saturday 22 June an invitational rapid tournament to honor the memory of Gambit Bonnevoie I captain Tim Upton has taken place in Foyer Européen, Luxembourg. The tournament has been organized by our club and the Chess club of the EU Institutions.
At the end of a hard-fought tournament, Gambit’s Steve Dishman prevailed. The second and third place went to GM Michael Hoffmann (Gambit) and IM Michael Wiedenkeller (Echternach), respectively, with our guests from Scotland, GM Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant, her husband Jonathan Grant and IM Craig Pritchett to follow closely.
A book of the most remarkable games by Tim Upton, annotated by Gambit top players and others, has been made available to the participants of our traditional barbecue on 23 June.
Gambit and the Chess Club of the European institutions would like to thank all the participants and the spectators, in particular our friends from Scotland, for creating a great ambiance which made the tournament memorable.

Our players have won their second national Blitz Chess title in a row, emerging clear first ahead of Differdange and Bieles after 18 rounds of 3’ per player games with 2’’ increment. The tournament organised by CE Philidor Beggen offered a number of though battles among the participating teams.
Gambit I (Steve Dishman, Slobodan Filipović, Óskar Bjarnason, Zoran Stanić) started as rating favourites and successfully defended their Luxembourg champions title by winning 15 matches, drawing 2 and losing 1.
Gambit II (Stefan Maltezeanu, Geoffrey Stern, Matthew Dishman, Dans Vijups) finished the competition on place 5.
The Luxembourg Chess League 2017/18 is over, with a final round on 25 March in Differdange which brought together all the participating teams for a colourful gran finale (RTL).
The balance for Gambit teams is mixed. Despite a fierce fight, Gambit Bonnevoie I was not able to defend our Luxembourg champions title, which returned to the Echternach team of the Luxembourg all-time-best GM Alberto David and chess legend GM Robert Hübner. Congratulations to Echternach for dominating this season! The clear second place gained by our players ahead of Dudelange qualifies us for the European Chess Club Cup in Porto Carras (Greece) later this year.

Gambit II had to admit the superiority of Differdange II and finished third in the Promotion d’honneur, missing the chance of promotion to the highest division. Our players could not overcome the merciless laws of statistics reflected in an average Elo difference of 180 points.
The other Gambit teams gained significant experience for the next season, with our young players making good progress and putting into practice what they have learned so far.
