The tournament caravan has been put into motion... It happened with the sweetest feelings since all the participants received a small surprise present - Turo Rudi, a traditional Hungarian cottage cheese stick covered with chocolate!

The first round ended without big upsets, so we will focus on some visual impressions. You are also kindly invited to check our round video report




and the interviews with two grandmasters, Lubomir Ftacnik


and Gergely Szabo



- you may be surprised to see which teams they are coaching here!




Is this really the Under 16 Olympiad? Some of the participants are surprisingly young!



This boy needed early energy supplies - just check the Turo Rudi evidence!



There still is some time left for joking... We are children after all!



Georgia ante portas



Mutual inspiration before the game?



Iulija Osmak is not only the girl of the Ukrainian team - she also is the highest rated player!



Yours faithfully hosts in permanent search for new talents - would it be Aleksandra Goryachkina?

Finally, we should mention that the first round best game prize was awarded to the game Armin Juhasz - Gijir Munkhabayar. The prize will be handed out before the start of the second round.
