GM Laurent Fressinet will be our guest commentator

French GM Laurent Fressinet will be our guest commentator during the tournament. Each round, he and GM Stellan Brynell will guide you through the games, both live at the Elite Plaza Hotel in Malmo, and live on the Internet (see the Live Games menu, once the tournament has started).

Laurent was himself a participant in 2014, when he won the Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament, scoring 3½ points in 5 rounds.

In connection with the death of our administrator Anders Hansen (RIP, friend), we lost control of our Instagram account (tepesigeman).

To preserve our Instagram presence, we have created a new Instagram account, called tepesigemanchess. We have restored all the old posts, but unfortunately, all comments and all messages have been lost.
