Kaluga Festival - September 12-14, 2006
Four current and former World Champions responded to the invitation from checkers enthusiasts in the Russian city of Kaluga to participate in their Checkers Festival. The festival was a tremendous success, the grandmasters conducted simuli matches at factories and clubs, many children (of all ages) got a chance to see and play the legendary players. Later on the four grandmasters played against each other and then they participated in the open blitz tournament.
