15th Lienz Chess Open

Kunin, Meijers, and Kasparov top seeded

The 15th Internationales Lienz Open has started this weekend in Austria. The tournament is a 9 round Swiss event, 20 titled players from 17 countries and a total of 170 players participate in the event. Top seeded are GM Vitaly Kunin (Russia), GM Viesturs Meijers (Latvia), and GM Sergey Kasparov (Belarus).

Hannes Gschwentner welcomed the participants in the tournament saying, ” ‘Chess is not only a sport but also art and science’ emphasises world chess champion Garry Kasparov.

It is the very most remarkable and complex board game. It requires power of concentration, strategy, power of deduction and foresighted action – abilities which are also of great importance in everyday life.

I would like to thank the Chess Club Volksbank Lienz for organizing the Lienz Open 2009 and hope for a lively participation.
I wish all the participants as well as all the guests an exciting event.

There were no major surprises in round 1 and all titled players won their games. Round 2 for the total prize fund of 6600 eur continues on Sunday. More information on the official site: www.schachklub-lienz.at
