Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

I’m coming back and not alone:)-… I’ve played around the world and seen many places, but you really are in my Top 3 of all! The combination of nice people, venue, soccer (yes indeed!), good food and great chess culture, is simply a perfect reason to return!

Daniel Vanheirzeele

“Somehow Iceland became my favorite chess country. I have always enjoyed playing in the Reykjavik Open. It’s a strong tournament, the place is mind blowing, the people are warm.”
