The “Mongol Tuurgatan” chess competition is to be held from 12th to the 21st March. The best chess players from Mongolia, Inner Mongolia and the Russian Republics of Buryatia, Tuva and Kalmykia will participate in the event. Many Mongolian Peoples live beyond the frontiers of Mongolia. Kalmyks, for example, originally migrated from Khovd Province and now live in European Russia and in China’s “Inner Mongolia” there are more ethnic Mongolians than in Mongolia. The competition comes at the incentive of the Global Society of “World Mongolians”, which strives to show the common heritage which is shared. The first place winner will receive a gold medal and USD 4500, the second - a silver medal and USD 2500, and third will receive a bronze medal and USD 1500.
