50th Anniversary of CAPEA

CAPEA (Club de Ajedrez Postal Español en Alemania / Spanish Postal Chess Club in Germany) was founded by a group of Spaniards on the 1st January 1971 in Mühlheim am Main (Germany). During all this time, it has permanently been organizing multiple tournaments for its members, including especially 10th Anniversary International Open, 20th Anniversary Open, Live Chess International Tournament of La Pobla de Lillet (Barcelona), 25th Anniversary International Open, and 40th Anniversary International Open. It has also published the magazine Revista Ajedrez Postal CAPEA - a yearbook with many articles, analyses and anecdotes on our modality, as well as an original Calendar.
