Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

“In general, I’ve done pretty well playing in Iceland. I think this is thanks to a mixture of the friendliness of the people, the respect chess obviously gets here and the fresh air everywhere, all of which combines to make me feel at home here.”

GM Gawain Jones

“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!”
