The 2014 Reykjavik Open will be the 50th anniversary edition of one of the best open tournaments in the chess calendar. We’ve visited the tournament twice, and enjoyed it very much so we’re happy to advertise the anniversary edition here at ChessVibes!

Like in previous years, the tournament will be held in Harpa, Reykjavik’s spectacular new music hall and conference centre by the harbour. It’s only a five-minute walk to downtown Reykjavik, a must for any chess player to visit at least once in his life!
