Two Deree Students performed remarkably at the “PCU International University Chess Cup”

We are happy to announce that two students from Deree – The American College of Greece, members of our Intramural Sports program, Konstantinos Sotirakis and Ioanna Lazaridi, performed remarkably well at the “PCU International University Chess Cup” organized by PCU Committee.

This is a worldwide online chess tournament with 156 participants, which took off as a result of the globally imposed restrictive measures against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Konstantinos ranked 19th out of 156 participants in the general ranking, and Ioanna ranked 40th out of 77 participants in her group.

The competition was intense as Fide Master (FM), International Master (IM) and National Master (NM) players were among the participants.
