How about a nice Chess-y winter in Moscow?

Hello Everyone,

The Aeroflot Open Chess Festival - with sections for the unrated to top grandmasters - is going to be held for the tenth year from February 7-11, 2011 in the great chess city of Moscow.

The total prize fund is 160,000 Euros, and it includes qualification places for the Super Tournament in Dortmund and the World Blitz Championship 2011.

As before, the festival is sponsored by the Russian Airlines Aeroflot. For the sixth year running the festival will take place in the major tourist complex 'Izmailovo' - hotel 'Gamma – Delta', where the participants of the previous festivals loved to play and stay.

Three Open Tournaments (A, B and C) are made up according to the rating of the participants. Naturally, the greatest interest is aroused by A tournament, requiring from a participant a rating above 2550 and usually boasting a number of extra class players.
