Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

GM Tomas Likavsky from Slovakia has won the 29th Liechtenstein International Open by scoring 7.0 points for a clear first place and winner's trophy. Eight players were half a point behind on a shared second place.

The 29th Liechtenstein International Open was held from May 27 to June 4 at Gemeindesaal Triesen in the Principality of Liechtenstein. The tournament was organised by the Liechtensteiner Schachverband and supported by S.D. Erbprinz Alois von und zu Liechtenstein.

The main Open had 84 players and six Grandmasters in the field. The prize fund is CHF 11.000, with CHF 2.000 reserved for the champion. Senior Open had 44 participants. Top prize in this group is CHF 800.

In the Senior Open, IM Bhend Edwin SUI 2257, IM Pribyl Josef CZE 2333, IM Eperjesi Laszlo HUN 2177 and FM Hohler Peter SUI 2178 shared the first place with 6.5 points each.

By the way, we wonder if you recall, whatever happened to that news: Yours to rent for £40,000 a night: Liechtenstein puts whole country on the market (but 30,000 residents will stay)!
