The competition was organised by the Association Echiquéenne pour les Aveugles (Chess Association for the Blind - AEPA) and the National Chess Federation. At this event, 39 players from France, Italy, Belgium and Tunisia played a succession of games on twenty tables, in seven rounds. Among the players were seven children from the Monte-Carlo Chess Circle.
