Full listing on chess-results.com:  http://chess-results.com/tnr41690.aspx?lan=1

Conditions for GM´s and IM´s have already been allocated.

36 players with rating over 2600 and 80 other players with GM title asked for conditions. We are sorry not to be able to give all these great players conditions. However we hope that some of them will participate in the tournament. Price of flights to Iceland and accommodations should be cheap these days because of the weak status of the Icelandic currency. All queries will be answered in the next few days. You can get more info if you mail to: reykjavikopen2011@gmail.com
