Happy new year!
Reykjavik Open will be held in Harpa, Reykjavik´s spectacular new music hall on the harbour.
In co-operation with Icelandair we offer special package for US players, who wants to participate. The package includes flight (from Boston, New York and Seattle), hotel and 25% discount of entrance fee. Please notice that flight between New York and Iceland is only 5 hours!
I would be very grateful if you could forward or publish the information so as many US chess players as possible could know about this special package which we have made for them.
There will be a strong field. Fabiano Caruana and David Navara are among more than 20 grandmasters who participate. And at least 3 American grandmasters: Robert Hess, Yuri Shulman and Maurice Ashley. Total number of players will be around 150-200.
