Chess Tournament: "Fathers and Sons" (Parents vs. Kids)

Russian Heritage Foundation proudly announces an opening of new Series "Fathers and Sons" (Parents vs. Kids).

This time we invite everyone to join us for unique Chess Tournament at International Chess Academy. Parents will be playing against children! Each pair will be assigned in accordance with their level of mastery by one of the Founders of the Chess Academy, who will introduce the Academy students' achievements, traditions, and inspiration. Tournament will be also preceded by the short presentation of young performers of the 5 A.M. Theatre about checkmate in Russian literature, movies, and animation.

Let's unite our Dads, in anticipation of the Father's Day, in their noble effort to try to not  get swept by the young checkmate students! Everyone, beginners and novice, players and fans are welcome!

Co-Founder - Irina Levitina is one of the most accomplished woman players from the days of the Soviet Union. Irina was a three-time USSR Women's Champion in 1971, 1979, and 1980, as well as winner of the Women's Olympiad in 1972 (scoring 5.5 out of 6), in 1974 (scoring 7.5 out of 9), and in 1984 (scoring 6.5 out of 11). Irina was given the rank of Woman's International Grand Master in 1976.


Founder - Diana Tulman, one of the co-founders of the ICA, has an obvious love for the game of chess, which helps inspire her students not only to become better, but also to develop their own passion for the game. It is this passion that compels so many of her students to stick with chess.

    If a parent does not play, can they still bring their child?

    Изменилась дата проведения турнира, а вместе с ней и условия.
    Изменения на наш взгляд к лучшему.
    Вот частично условия проведения:
    1) it should be FUN oriented, since there are plenty of tournaments that are not FUN, but pure 'rating' and trophy!
    2) we should allow anyone (dad or granddad or even mom?) who wants to participate, play!
    3) we will come up with chess related prizes - (maybe some russian chess books?)
    4) the format will be:
    - team matches;
    - teams play each other twice;
    - two types of teams on each side: team A and team B. Team A consist of more or less of 'serious' players ('rated' or 'ranked') Team B consist of players who love the game but not very good... ICA will be able to come up with 4 or 6 or 8 per team.
