Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

“The Reykjavik Open survived the financial crisis and now has stable financial and, equally important, political backing for the next three years. This year the tournament moved to a world-class concert hall called Harpa, which was completed last Spring. It is surely one of the most spectacular venues for an open tournament anywhere. The tournament is being positioned as a showcase event in the nation’s capital, but part and parcel of a larger chess development initiative. Icelanders see their country as a bridge between the Americas and Europe, and Reykjavik with its relaxed cosmopolitan flair is at the centre. Just pack your boots, and keep an eye out for elves!”

“I have played in Reykjavik many times and it gets better every time. The playing conditions are superb and the organizers ensure that it’s a very competitive field. There is something for everyone while at Reykjavik, and I am sure I will be back there to defend my title next year.”
