In 2013, the ACO World Amateur Chess Championship took place on Crete from 11-20 May. About 168 players with ages from 7 to 94 competed for the title of ACO World Champion in the 4-star all-Inclusive hotel Aquis Arina Sand. Players from 26 countries, among them Australia, Venezuela, Malaysia and many parts of the US took part in the championship.

The first ACO World Championship was held in Dubai in 2012, there were 72 players, and in 2013 it were already more than twice this number. The venue of the event was the award-winning 4-star all-Inclusive Hotel Aquis Arina Sand.
