1st FIDE World Championships for the Disabled - StevieHilton - 12-10-2013

On the 20th October, I will fly out to Dresden for the 1st World Disabled Chess Championships.
There are 89 players representing 19 countries. I will be the only representative from any of the home nations.
All three World Champions ( Blind, Deaf and Physically disabled) will be present at this event. The highest rated entrant is GM Thomas Luther from Germany at 2559.
There is a link to this event available <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.worldchess-disabled.com/en">http://www.worldchess-disabled.com/en</a><!-- m --> but I am not sure how frequent this will be updated. Apart from the main event, there will also best player categories incorporated into the tournament.
I will return return to Scotland on the 29th October.
