Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

“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. “

Gerd Meier – Long-time follower participating in international chess tournaments for more than 35 years

“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!”
