Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

„And so an end has come to a wonderful tournament, or rather, festival, in “chess city” Reykjavik. The closing ceremony was organized in a way that one normally only sees at super tournaments: in the reception area of the town hall, with free champagne and hors-d’oeuvres. The organizers are ambitious: they are planning to grow further for the 49th and 50th edition which will also take place in Harpa and for which more private sponsorship has already been secured. Besides, for 2015 they hope to get the European Team Championship to Reykjavik. “

“This was my first time to Iceland, to take part in one of the world’s great traditional open tournaments, the Reykjavik Open. I really liked the playing venue. The view from the playing table was the ocean, which always puts me in a good mood!”

“Reykjavik Open has become my favorite tournament representing an excellent combination of serious chess, sightseeing, outdoor swimming pools, good food, and all the other fascinating possibilities that Iceland offers. Highly recommended!”
