The 1st “Neoclassical Chess” Open Tournament took place on July 19, 2015, at Hotel NH Principe de Vergara – Madrid****, situated in the Spanish capital.

The event was an 8-round Swiss tournament with time control 15′ + 5″.

40 players from 6 different countries took part in the tournament but the Spaniard GM Orelvis Perez Mitjans emerged a clear winner at 6.5 points.

The second place was shared in a three-way tie by FM Pedro Ramon Martinez Reyes of Venezuela, Javier Longa Yauca of Peru and FM Jose Miguel Ortega Ruiz of Spain, after the whole group finished the event with 6 points each.

Neoclassical chess is an evolution of the game of chess. The only difference with chess is that in Neoclassical Chess the first three full moves are obtained in a random manner just before the game starts through a software program designed for this purpose, among positions taken from recent chess master practice and, as a consequence, the game starts on fourth move, by White.
