The TePe Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament is back in Malmö, Sweden, featuring six players. The tournament was held for the first time in 1993, and was played yearly until it was discontinued in 2014. Fans of Malmö AS will be especially happy since our club’s top board GM Baadur Jobava is playing! The other players are GM Pavel Eljanov, GM Nigel Short, GM Nils Grandelius, GM Erik Blomqvist and GM Harika Dronavalli.
Players receive 120 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes to the end of the game, plus a 30-second increment starting from move one. As before, the tournament will be held at the Hipp Theater at Kalendegatan in central Malmö from 10-14 May, 2017. Official website: www.tepesigemanchess.com
