Welcome to the PokerStars Isle of Man
International Chess Tournament
- Published: 04 October 2015
As opposed to last year, when I was only a spectator of the combined chess and poker tournament, I decided to fork out £165 in order to be in the thick of the action this time around. While watching this innovative event had proven highly interesting and entertaining a year ago, witnessing it first hand was both a different and exciting experience altogether.

The 2015 PokerStars Isle of Man International Chess Tournament, commences in 2 days' time with 108 players from 28 countries so far entered for the Masters.
I would like to thank PokerStars and the Scheinberg family for making the event possible with very generous sponsorship, with the help of Isle of Man Department of Economic Development which is providing the Villa Marina free of charge.
