First Saturday – Chess: Closed tournaments

If in a previous article (read it here), I wrote about the interesting closed tournaments for FM, IM and GMs that they were organizing every month on Budapest. Without knowing it, now I have discovered that one of the best organizers and arbiters Nuno Andrade (and friend ;) ) is collaborating on the First Saturday Tournament of November which is being played on Budapest!

Laszlo Nagy is known as “Mr. First Saturdays”! due to he has organized many closed tournaments every First Saturday of the month for more than 25 years. Right now he's controlling the closed tournament of November and at the same time thinking on the organization of the next ones which will be played on 1-11 Dec, 2-12 Febr, 2-12 March, 30 March – 8 April,  Budapest Spring Festival Open 9-17 April, 4-14 May, 1-11 June, etc…

These events are awesome!
