We are delighted to welcome you to the website of the International TASHIR chess tournament in memory of Tigran Petrosian.
To honour the memory of the great champion, the Tashir Group of Companies together with the Russian Chess Federation decided to hold a tournament with the participation of the strongest grandmasters in the world from 3 to 11 November 2014. Within 8 days, 8 world-class players will be competing for the title of the best.
We are confident that our tournament will pay tribute to the memory of this great man, "the Iron Tigran", as the grand master used to be called for the unsurpassed art of defense. We hope we are able to conduct the best tournament of the year in Russia and one of the best three in the world.
Though, Tigran Petrosyan was able to make the right decisions in seconds, he believed that a truly deep chess move should be made without haste and bustle. We especially respect this chess strategy.
Tashir wishes success to all the participants of the tournament. And may the strongest win!
