On July 20, the day before National day, the Templeuve United club held a 3rd WASPA tournament counting for the 2020-2021 season. 10 players from Belgium were competing with a special format of tournament to satisfy the aimes of the differen competitors. There were old faces coming like Geert Leys paying a visit to Templeuve and Eddy Beernaert who was back to the game after a long break and there were two new players attending a tournamen for the very first time. The Swiss system was played in four sessions but after 3 sessions, the winner was already decided as Geoffrey Marain was the only player to have 7 points. Considering he had to play his last game against his son benjamin, it was decided that Geoffrey would not play the last session so that the other 8 players still present could all play another game. That decision was good for Benjamin Marain who managed to beat Didier Moons and to finish the night with 9 points to finish runner-up. Vincent Coppenolle was 3rd and undefeated (8 points) while Geert Leys was 4th (7 points). More importantly all players had a great evening and were glad to meet again.

After a long break, germany is also back in action and last week-end Milan Knezevic organized a WASPA tournament in Baden-Baden. Due to some restrictions the tournament was only open to six players but Milan had no pain to get six players together.
The tournament format was fantastic: a league system with home and away games som that every player had 10 between 11.00 am and 6.30 pm.
It was a very international tournament with Eric Lienhardt (France) taking the honors after being unbeaten, Milan Knezevic (Serbia) being runner-up and later in the table Peter Erb (Switzerland), Panagiotis Krommydas (Germany), Renato Parussini (Italy) and Maurizio Zironi (Italy) also taking part. there was a wonderful group from around Europe but more importantly there was a great fair spirit between competitors.
"Eric was the winner but the most important thing is that we met after a long time to spend time with our passion", commented organizer Milan Knezevic.
