Norway Chess was organised for the first time in May 2013, and was the first supertournament arranged in Norway. The tournament was a success for both players and organisers.
The tournament had a unique twist by using a variety of historical locations for the event. We wished by this to get maximum attention to the whole region. The Stavanger region wants to use the event as a means to promote the whole district.
The tournament includes:
- Super tournament with the majority of the top 10 ranked players
- School tournament with hundreds of children
- Celebrity tournament with a range of celebrities to show their chess skills
The winner of Norway Chess 2013 was Sergei Karjakin. Congratulations!
