Aeroflot Open 2018 starts in Moscow

Starting on Tuesday, February 20th, the Cosmos Hotel in Moscow (view from a guest room pictured) is once again the venue for the major annual Open sponsored by the Russian airline Aeroflot, which is already celebrating its sixteenth edition this year. There will three separate nine-round Swiss tournaments, and the top A Open is one of the strongest open tournaments ever — for a place on the starting list a player must have an Elo rating of at least 2550. The top seed is last year's winner Vladimir Fedoseev (Russia, Elo 2724), followed by Indian phenom Vidit Gujrathi, just one Elo point behind. | Photo: Niklesh Jain

This year it's a bit late to decide to participate, if you're not already in Moscow, but looking ahead to next year, you won't need to worrk about running out of hotel space: The Cosmos in the center of the Russian capital has more than 1,700 rooms...

In Russian, but easy to follow, and breathtaking!
