Hilversum, December 20 World Blitz Championship 2014

Main Menu


After having organized the World Blitz Championshop 2013 in Den Helder, we were looking for another location in Noord Holland for the 2014 World Blitz Championship. When we learned, that Ton Sijbrands will attack the World Record Blind Simultaneous Draughts in Hilversum, we decided to follow Ton and offer players and spectators the ritch experience of witnessing both the World Championship and the World Record Attempt.

The World Championship Blitz Draughts is still a young event. The first edition was organized in 1999 on the initiative of Dutch draughts promotor Theo Dijkstra. In it's first decade, the Championship had an irregular and modest frequency, but since 2011 it is being organized every year. The website of last years' event can be found here: http://wcblitz2013.fmjd.org . A video impression of the 2013 World Blitz Championship can be found here.
