TEPE SIGEMAN & CO CHESS TOURNAMENT
4-8 May 2018 - Malmö, Sweden

These are the six great chess players that will fight for first prize in this year’s edition of TePe Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament.

 

As in previous years, the tournament will be held at the Hipp Theater in Malmo and this year the dates will be 4–8th May, with a grand opening ceremony being held at the Malmo Town Hall on 3rd of May. The tournament will be broadcasted on web TV, and your hosts will be GM Yasser Seirawan and GM Stellan Brynell.

The organizing club Limhamns SK wishes to welcome everyone to a new chess party in Malmo.

The tournament would not have been possible without the support of the law firm Sigeman & Co, and the company TePe – Sweden’s leading manufacturer of dental products.

TePe and Sigeman & Co have been able to gather an interesting field yet again.

Vidit Gujrathi, India: The winner of Tata Steel Challengers this year.
Alexander Morozevich, Russia: One of the chess world’s most fascinating and famous chess players. He has been ranked number 2 in the world.
Aryan Tari, Norway: The new world junior chess champion.
Benjamin Gledura, Hungary: A great chess talent from one of the best chess countries in the world.

The organizing club Limhamns SK welcomes the players, spectators, sponsors and media to TePe Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament at Hipp in Malmo 4-8th of May.
