24th Politician Chess Tournament 2019 of the Berlin Chess Federation

On Saturday, 02 March 2018 at 10 a.m., the Hotel Maritim / Paris Hall will once again be the venue for “politicians playing chess”. For the 24th time the Berliner Schachverband, for the second time in cooperation with the Schachfreunde Berlin, organizes the Politicians Chess Tournament. For three years now, the tournament bears the name of its founder, our honorary president Alfred Seppelt, who died in 2015.

We are delighted to once again welcome top politicians, members of different parliaments as well as diplomats from many countries. Publicly known and respected politicians like former Federal President Dr. Richard von Weizsäcker, former Federal Minister of the Interior Otto Schily, former Mayor of Berlin Michael Müller and former Federal Minister of the Interior Otto Schily were only some of the participants in the popular political competition on the 64 fields.

Different experiences with chess clocks or on the chess board are compensated by a play strength compensation in the form of bonus points. We are looking forward to an interesting and rewarding event and to many enthusiastic participants.

The President of the Berlin Chess Federation, Carsten Schmidt, will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We will also be happy to answer any questions you may have at

German Youth League North-East

At the beginning of the 1970s, the Northern Youth League was founded. The best youth teams from Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony and Berlin played in the hardest league in the world (half of the ten teams dropped, as one team was promoted from each state association). The highlight for many teams at that time was the trip to the divided city of West Berlin. With German reunification, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and the whole of Berlin were added and the Northern Youth League was played in two squadrons (West / East). At the beginning of the nineties the league was renamed Jugendbundesliga Nord in order to show the importance of this league in the right light. Following this example, the NRW-Jugendliga was later renamed Jugendbundesliga West. In the youth Bundesliga North, the two relay winners qualify for the German club championship U20. If there are further places for the Jugendbundesliga Nord there (usually 3), these will be awarded via playoffs among the next place winners.
