The Limhamn Chess Club is proud to invite the players, the chess audience, the media and the sponsors to the 27th annual Tepe Sigeman Chess Tournament. The tournament will take place at the Malmo Live conference centre in central Malmo. This year, eight players will play seven rounds, and as usual, we have tried to create an interesting line-up!
The home team is represented by GM Nils Grandelius (winner in 2013, 2017 and 2018).
Among the challengers are last year’s winner, Dutch GM Jorden van Foreest, former World Championship challengers GM Alexei Shirov, Spain, and Michael Adams, England, as well as Czech GM David Navara.
On the starting line we also find one of the highest rated Asian chess players, GM Saleh Salem from United Arab Emirates, as well as two players from the world top 10 juniors list, GM Arjun Erigaisi from India and GM Hans Niemann from the US.
As usual, only players known for playing interesting games have been invited, and we would like to congratulate all chess fans on the opportunity to once again see world-class chess live. Do not miss the opportunity to visit Malmo Live and follow the games live, guided by our commentators, Swedish GM Stellan Brynell and Dutch GM Erwin l’Ami. For those who are not able to visit Malmo Live during the games, it will of course be possible to follow all games live on the Internet (www.tepesigemanchess.com).
We would also like to thank all our sponsors, TePe, Sigeman & Co, the City of Malmö, PWC, Grenspecialisten, Informationsteknik, Hotel Duxiana, Schackakademien, Doxa, Mobile Labs, Ferring Läkemedel, Servicekuben, Max Matthiessen, AWA Sweden, Softhouse Consulting and SEB, and all others who once again have contributed to making this traditional chess event come true.
