The Rio de Janeiro State Team Championship – An 83-year-old tradition

The Rio de Janeiro State Team Championship – An 83-year-old tradition
To most outsiders, Rio de Janeiro would never be linked to a deep tradition in chess, yet the very first club was co-founded by legendary author Machado de Assis, who also took part in the first tournament in 1880. The first State Team Championship was held in 1928 and this year the Tijuca Tênis Clube won its 17th title since its first in 1941, 70 years ago.
