A storm with heavy rain falls hit Livorno last night and forced a postponement of the World Championship Match 2017 in Checkers (3-move) between Michele Borghetti and Sergio Scarpetta for at least until 15:30 CEST today.

We hope both players, the referee, all organizers and checker friends are save and all right.

The last game of the first day ended in a draw, after Sergio Scarpetta first equalized comfortably, but then seemed to be in a hopeless position after he played inaccurately. However, a surprising defensive shot at the end cleared the smoke and he came away unhurt.

GM Sergio Scarpetta (ITA) 1
GM Michele Borghetti (ITA) 0
