Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

“Reykjavik Open has become my favorite tournament representing an excellent combination of serious chess, sightseeing, outdoor swimming pools, good food, and all the other fascinating possibilities that Iceland offers. Highly recommended!”

Henrik Carlsen

“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.”
