Small Nations Chess Team Tournament

Sealand platformThe Max Euwe Chess Association from Monte Carlo organized three editions of the tournament of small nations in 1993, 1995 and 1997 respectivaly, with financial support of Joop van Oosterom, famous millionaire and addicted chess patron. The venues were Metropole Hotel Mount-Carl, then l' Mirabeau hotel (from which the famous curve of the circuit of Formula 1 took its name) and l' Hotel de Méridien Beach Plaza. The tournament was worldwide with some exotic nations (Aruba, Seychelles) participating as well. The tournament winners were San Marino, Andorra and Liechtenstein while the number of participating nations grew up to 10.
