Mirco Fanti 2k of Bologna earned an extremely close victory in the Primo Torneo A Faenza on Saturday, April 17 in Faenza, Italy. Fanti’s deciding win in the handicap tournament came against Italian vice-Champion Davide Minieri 3d of Padova, after they both finished even on all tie-breakers. Leonardo Dal Zovo 2k (r) of Forleone won bronze 3-1.  Mario Fava 11k of Treviso and local hero Stefano Giurin 13k also won three games each. Sixteen players participated.

Javaness cites Italian newspaper reports detailing allegations about Soletti’s financial involvement with a politician who has pleaded guilty.
