3rd International Mind Sports Open (Online)

Hello Abalone players and other abstract players!
Yesterday, Franscesco Salerno shared this interesting piece of information on Facebook:

Hi all! I wanted to let you know that the Mind Sports Event supposed to be held in Madrid on the first days of May, organized by MusiChess and @aprenderjugandolapalma, has been postponed (more info in the next months) for the reasons we all know.

Considering most of us will spend long time at home, the event has been reconverted into an online event! The format is different and quite interesting. There are 3 main tournaments (Modern Abstract Strategy, Classic Abstract Strategy, Chess Variants) and the players will have to play all the games proposed for each round. Around 4 days per round for a total of a month roughly, starting on the 1st of April.

Have a look on the rules!

Stay safe everyone and keep playing!!
