Ikaros Chess Festival 13-21 July

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 

For one more year Ikaros commences its flight, somewhat earlier than usual, with the aim to provide its participants and guests with a thoroughly organized chess tournament that will combine strong fights over the board with relaxing vacations on one of the most popular summer chess destinations, the beautiful island of Ikaria! 
As every year, the organization committee of the tournament, made a considerable effort so as to keep the overall participation cost low (the basic package costs 200 euros per person for the period 13-21 July and includes accommodation (the board expenses are not included), entry fee, daily transportation to the playing venue and transportation from and to the port of Evdilos, in case this is necessary due to the ferry schedule). Also, as every year, there are special discounts for families, juniors, club teams and unemployed people, while there additional discounts for those who will pay in advance.

The official announcement of the tournament, which, as always, also includes numerous side events (the annual Mediterranean Team Rapid Tournament, blitz and blind tournaments, problem solving contest etc.). For those who have visited Ikaria before, the island doesn’t need any particular credentials!

The official webpage of the tournament, with all the latest information about Ikaros Chess Tournament 2013 can be found at:
