V Prague International Chess Festival – Open section

The 5th year of the Prague International Chess Festival will take place at the beginning of the summer at the Don Giovanni Hotel in Prague. In the Masters tournament, we can look forward to 10 top grandmasters, among them the winner of last year´s Masters tournament Pentala Harikrishna from India, best Czech player David Navara, chess legend Boris Gelfand from Israel and the winner of last year´s Challengers tournament Vincent Keymer from Germany. In addition to the traditional open grandmaster tournament where the winner will advance to Challengers next year, amateur chess players can choose a round robin rating tournament, which is a type of tournament that does not occur frequently. This edition will bring significantly increased number of side tournaments that will be counted for overall Grand Prix where best ranked players will be awarded unique prizes. 

In the Open section the time control is 90 minutes for the first 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game, with an increment of 30 seconds per move, starting from move one. It is 9 round Swiss system tournament with participation of Santiago Avila Pavas, Guha Mitrabha, Dusan Popovic, P Iniyan, Jose Gabriel Cardoso Cardoso, Deep Sengupta, etc.
