Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

„The tournament in Reykjavik is finished. I met so many great people here and spent the time really great. Iceland is an amazing country! I’m very grateful to Gunnar Bjornsson and all other people who took participation in the organization of this great festival “

GM Alexander Ipatov – 2012 Junior World Champion

“The Reykjavik Open survived the financial crisis and now has stable financial and, equally important, political backing for the next three years. This year the tournament moved to a world-class concert hall called Harpa, which was completed last Spring. It is surely one of the most spectacular venues for an open tournament anywhere. The tournament is being positioned as a showcase event in the nation’s capital, but part and parcel of a larger chess development initiative. Icelanders see their country as a bridge between the Americas and Europe, and Reykjavik with its relaxed cosmopolitan flair is at the centre. Just pack your boots, and keep an eye out for elves!”
