The Chess Club “Rijeka” organizes the 4th open chess tournament “Mediterranean 2017” from 13 November to 20 November 2010 in the city of Rijeka, located at the North-west part of the Croatian coast of the Adriatic sea.
The manifestation is organized for the occasion of the candidacy of the city of Rijeka for organization of the Mediterranean Games in 2017, under the motto “Chess with the scent of the sea”, and with the idea to promote companionship and cooperation of chess players and chess federations of the Mediterranean countries.
The top seeded players successfully passed the first round without allowing major upsets, except that GM Vladislav Nevednichy, arriving directly from the Bora Kostic Memorial, lost against Croatian FM Julian Plenca.
