“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!”

GM Maurice Ashley

“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. “

“A perfect tournament for amateurs too. It’s always a highlight if you beat a 250-points higher rated player at a playing venue with fantastic sea views. 2017 will be my 5th consecutive participation in Reykjavik. I already threatened the organizers not to stop visiting before my 50th visit. A secret info from my side. there is a restaurant where Bobby Fischer used to enjoy his dinner. The seat is easy to identify by a picture hanging at the wall. Which restaurant? Ask google or Gunnar. “
