Torneo Internazionale di Scacchi
(International Chess Tournament organized by the Trieste Chess Society) during September in Trieste (2006 - 2013).

During Tournament B, called Trofeo Libero e Zora Polojaz, many promising young people participated, coming not only from Italy but from Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Austria, Hungary, Georgia, Russia, Uzbekistan, India, the Czech Republic, etc.

Libero Polojaz was a passionate chess player who believed in its educational value and its positive effects on the development and growth of a person. By playing chess one exercises their attention, concentration and planning skills along with other areas in the intellectual sphere, all combined with a healthy dose of aggression.
