The previous weekend was magical for chess lovers around the world. The Grand Chess Tour 2023 surprised us with the 3rd round of the tournament, held in Zagreb, Croatia.

Ten of the world’s best chess players battled it out in this fast&blitz chess stage for a prize fund of $175,000 and the title of Zagreb stage champion.

After his success in the previous round in Poland, Magnus Carlsen, the former world champion and the highest-rated player of the moment, managed to strike again after an unexpected series of wins.

The first three days of the competition kept the audience in suspense throughout the 9 rounds of rapid chess. Former world champion Vishy Anand had a great start with 2 wins and a draw on the first competition day. Grandmasters Fabiano Caruana and Ian Nepomniachtchi came back strongly in the last 6 rounds of the rapid chess tournament and finished in the top two positions on equal points.

Magnus didn’t shine in the first part of the tournament, but the two blitz tournaments fit like a glove for the Norwegian chess player.

On the first day of the blitz, Magnus brought the crowd to its feet with a run of 9 consecutive wins that propelled him to the top of the rankings. At the end of the 18 rounds of blitz, Magnus has achieved a remarkable 14 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in blitz, a score that has put him at the top of the rankings.

The last week has brought us only good news regarding the evolution of the Superbet Foundation partnerships.

Health, education through sport and performance have been the most targeted areas over the last period and the results have been beyond our expectations.

The Foundation team participated in the Race for the Cure 2023!

As a diamond sponsor, Superbet Foundation was present again this year in the biggest fundraising marathon in Europe. Together we supported one of the most important causes in the medical field to solve an important problem of the medical system in Romania. Romania is still at the top of the ranking in the number of cancer deaths, a problem accentuated by the precarious situation and lack of material possibilities.

Together with our volunteers, we run the Race for the Cure marathon every year to give women in Romania a chance at life when they are unable to get regular check-ups.

An early diagnosis can increase the chance of life of any patient and we, as a diamond sponsor, want to make a significant contribution to saving as many lives as possible.

Performances for the small athletes of the GO Scholarship program.

The RobotX team has taken its first steps in the International Space Station project!

The team formed by Maria Alexa, Alexandru Budiul, and Luca Rădos took the first steps in the completion of one of the biggest projects of the RobotX partner team.

With the help of a special camera equipped with a special near-infrared filter, the camera managed to capture 931 photos during two rotations around the Earth.

Using these photos, the RobotX team can determine the health of the vegetation on Earth by calculating each pixel in the image using the Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NVDI).

Over the next few days, the team will make all the necessary calculations and the resulting report will be submitted to the European Space Agency at the end of June.

Science is taking small steps towards evolution, and we are happy to be an important support in the development of science and technology.
