GAMMA Reykjavík Open 2018 - Bobby Fischer Memorial

March 6th - 14th

 

The GAMMA Reykjavík Open 2018, set for 6-14th March, will be a very special event as this edition will be dedicated to the chess king Bobby Fischer.
An Icelandic citizen in his last years, Robert James Fischer was born on March 9th 1943. That means he would have turned 75 years old during GAMMA Reykjavik Open 2018.
His contributions to chess history will be celebrated during the tournament. Instead of the normal 10 rounds there will be nine rounds this year and a “free day” on March 9th. Then a special event with the support of the European Chess Union will be organized – a Fischer Random championship with excellent prices.

The tournament will dedicate other events to Fischer’s chess life in many different ways. There will be lectures, exhibitions and you will get the opportunity to visit the playing hall from 1972, his grave, his favorite restaurant and of course see the original chess board, which is usually kept in the Icelandic National Museum!
The tournament will be held in Harpa, the 28.000 sqm. concert hall and conference center. A truly unique tournament hall – probably the best in the world! Reykjavik Open has always a very strong field and there will no difference in 2018. In 2017 there were 266 players from 40 countries with 33 GM’s.Anish Giri was the winner of Reykjavik Open in 2017. Top prizes in the Open are 5.000€, 2.000€, 1.250€, 800€, 600€. More information on the official website.
