Match Israel-Portugal

For the first time in history, a delegation of Portuguese draughts players came to Israel and took part in several competitions.

The events were held with the cooperation of the draughts federations of Israel and Portugal, and the municipalities of the cities of Kiryat Gat and Karnei Shomron, as well as draughts activists, grandmasters Yuri Kirillov, Dmitry Ganopolsky and Nuno Viera from the Portuguese side.
