Still Thinking About Your Next Move?

“Thanks again for the fantastic tournament. I plan on returning to Reykjavik many more times.”

GM Robert Hess

“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).”
