„The tournament in Reykjavik is finished. I met so many great people here and spent the time really great. Iceland is an amazing country! I’m very grateful to Gunnar Bjornsson and all other people who took participation in the organization of this great festival “

GM Alexander Ipatov – 2012 Junior World Champion

“The Reykjavik Open is one of the strongest and most innovative open tournaments in the world, played in the magnificent Harpa building – think a black Sydney Opera House with plenty of side-events plus, of course, the chance to see amazing Iceland. Not surprisingly a steady stream of US players makes a February pilgrimage to Iceland – home to the famous 1972 world title match as well as Bobby Fischer’s home for his final years (and his final resting place).”
