“I can clearly state that Reykjavik Open is the best and the most fascinating Open tournament I have ever experienced. Reykjavik is probably the most attractive spot worldwide to play a chess open. The chosen location for this competition, HARPA, is outstanding and you can barely find a better place. The organization including side events is perfect. The international chess flair with world top-class players is just overwhelming. “

GM Ian Rogers

“The Reykjavik Open is one of the strongest and most innovative open tournaments in the world, played in the magnificent Harpa building – think a black Sydney Opera House with plenty of side-events plus, of course, the chance to see amazing Iceland. Not surprisingly a steady stream of US players makes a February pilgrimage to Iceland – home to the famous 1972 world title match as well as Bobby Fischer’s home for his final years (and his final resting place).”

“Back home from an amazing trip to Iceland! Reconnected with old friends and made a few new ones. The organization of the tournament was fabulous; they do everything to make you feel right at home. And the food! Some of the best soups and freshly made fish I’ve had in years. Iceland’s simply one of the best places in the world. I can’t wait to return!”
