Dear friends of chess game,


I am pleased to inform you about the internet chess tournament

OMD Dystro Ope-net 2018.


The tournament is primary intended for people with muscular dystrophy or other neuro-muscular diseases, but every chess-player with any disability is welcome to take part in it.


This year the 9th annual will come through. The organizer, Organization of muscular dystrophy in Slovak republic (OMD in SR), enlarged the tournament abroad starting from 6th annual.


We hope you will find the idea of the tournament - designed especially for disabled people - interesting, you will join the tournament or spread the information about it among disabled chess-players. We would like to make the chess tournament accessible for the players that have – regarding to their extensive disability – limited opportunities to take part in the common chess tournaments.


Due to Communication portal of the tournament it is easy to contact your opponent even if you don´t speak the same language. We prepared the tournament proposal and rules in Slovak and English.
