“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. “

“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!”
