Li Chao claims the trophy in Reykjavik Open 2014

The Chinese Grandmaster Li Chao was the sole winner of the N1 Reykjavik Open which took place on 4-12th March at the Harpa Music & Conference Hall.

Li Chao finished with 8,5 points from 10 rounds. The best placed Icelandic player was GM Helgi Ólafsson on 8 points, sharing the second place with Robin Van Kampen, Eric Hansen and Eduardas Rozentalis.

Iceland Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson visited the tournament on the last day to execute the first move in the game Hansen-Olafsson.

The organizers also honoured Trausti Björnsson, Friðrik Ólafsson and Jón Kristinsson, who all participated in the first Reykjavik Open 50 years ago in 1964.

Six players made international norms. The Egyptian Mohamed Ezat was the only one to get a Grandmaster norm. Five players made IM norms – the young Indian Chitambaram Vr. Aravindh, Tatev Abrahamyan, Daniel Cawdery, Brede Kvisvik and Lenka Ptácníková.
