Reykjavik Chess Festival 2013 - Not Too Early to Plan!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

It doesn't seem to be too early to plan for a chess tournament to play in 2013, particularly when the chess event is going to be in an exotic location? We talk of the Reykjavik Chess Open 2013 - in Fischer country - from March 5 to 13, 2013.

The Icelandic Chess Federation, along with the Reykjavik Chess Academy, has already announced the schedule of the 28th edition of the Reykjavik Chess Festival and are accepting entries. The interesting part is that the chess event of 2013 would have an additional tenth round! One whole new chess round to play. We think that's cool. The double chess-game rounds would also finish off in the first half of the chess fest itself.

There is a whole lot more to the Reykjavik Chess Festival next year -- extra online chess boards, improved recording in pgn of chess games, Hort system for chess tiebreaks, flight deals, and the chess stars as always.

The Reykjavik Chess Festival 2013 would be organised in Harpa -- Reykjavik brand new music hall near the harbour. The total prize fund for the chess festival is €15000. You can find more information at the official website of this amazing chess festival.
