GM Kiril Georgiev and GM Evgenij Agrest top seeded
Chessdom’s search for chess events with great conditions continues. So far the best classical event for the summer is the Ikaros Chess Festival, offering conditions to basically every player and rewarding the 2400+ one with 2 eur for each rating point above that.
Today we present you yet another nice event, that happens a month earlier. It is also a different type of event – a rapid one with time control 15 min + 5 sec per move. It takes place in Fornells, Menorca (Spain) and is the third edition of the chess memorial Vicente Sebastian.
The tournament has no entrance fee and will feature a nice prize fund of over 6000 eur. It is a weekend event, 27th and 28th of June, and the winner will be decided over 9 rounds swiss system with Bucholz tiebreak.
Up to now several grandmasters have signed up including GM Kiril Georgiev, GM Evgenij Agrest, GM Ibragim Khamrakulov, GM Cabrera, GM Mateo Ramon, and GM Herrera.
