Since 2009 the Polish town of Lublin has been host to the "European Chess Festival", and over the years the organisers have experimented with different formats. Last year Poland and Ukraine played a team match, and the 8. European Chess Festival, which took place from 13th to 18th of June, again saw a team match - but this time Poland had to battle against "Europe". The three Polish players Kasper Piorun, Mateusz Bartel and Jacek Tomczak faced Czech player David Navara, Martyn Kravtsiv from Ukraine and Dimitrios Mastrovasilis from Greece.

The match was rather balanced most of the time but in the last round David Navara secured a narrow 7-5 victory for Europe by winning against Jacek Tomczak.
