Zurich Chess Challenge 2015 – Side Events

Zurich Chess Challenge 2015

The Zurich Chess Challenge 2015 is scheduled to take place from 13-19th February, 2015, at the Hotel Savoy Baur en Ville, in Zurich, Switzerland.

The supporting programme features Sergey Karjakin who will be playing a simultaneous exhibition against the sponsors at the “Zunfthaus zur Saffran” on 12th February.

A real gem will be the rapid match between two living legends, Grandmasters Viktor Korchnoi and Wolfgang Uhlmann, who both made a lasting impression on the chess scene at their height. They will celebrate their 84th and 80th birthday respectively in March 2015.

This event will be held on February 15th (rounds 1-2) and February 16th (rounds 3-4), both days at 11am at the Hotel “Savoy Baur en Ville”.

Before the games, Paul Werner Wagner of the “Emanuel Lasker Gesellschaft” will make a presentation on the chess history.
