Reykjavik Open 2023

Reykjavik Open 2023

The 37th edition of the Reykjavik Open will be held from March 29th until April 4th, 2023 in Harpa, the 28.000 sq. m. concert- and conference hall in downtown Reykjavik. The tournament has been the flagship of Icelandic chess for many years and one of the most prestigious and well-liked open tournaments on the calendar every year.

The tournament is proud to add Chessable as its sponsor and right now we have over 200 participants already registered, including 23 grandmasters and several other titled players. The current top seed is frequent tournament visitor Nils Grandelius, the Swedish number one, and other players are on the verge of joining the tournament!

Our goal this year is to break the 300-player mark and set a new tournament record! We came close last year with 245 players, we can do better this year with the chess world more or less having returned to normal after “you-know-what” in 2019-2021!

If you are looking for an interesting and friendly tournament to include in your chess calendar, Reykjavik Open is for you!
