The second round of the fall 2023 season is behind us!

Warsaw, November 5, 2023

The second round of the SGH Chess Business League brought another dose of emotions and unforgettable impressions for participants and observers. The competition in the SGH Library was heating up, and each company was trying to strengthen its position in the league.

Fierce Competition in the Second Round

The second round was a real test of the players' skills and strategic thinking. The meetings held in the modernist building of the Warsaw School of Economics showed how companies represented by their teams incorporate chess into their corporate culture.

Each of the four matches in the round was full of tension, and the results were often not decided until the last seconds. All teams showed excellent preparation, which promised even greater emotions in the next rounds.

Simultana with IM Piotr Nguyen

However, it was not only the competition between companies that made this event strong. Following the example of the first round, the organizers provided an additional attraction in the form of a simultaneous session with International Champion Piotr Nguyen.

This simultaneous event was a unique opportunity for participants to challenge one of the best chess players in the world. Piotr Nguyen, known for his analytical approach and lightning-fast reactions, was a challenge even for the most experienced players in the league. Even though most of the games ended with IM Nguyen winning, several teams managed to achieve a draw, which was a great success for them.
