An invitation to Benasque 2009

It's time for my annual invitation to the Benasque Open, the international chess tournament high up in the Spanish Pyrenees in July.

This year the tournament is taking place 3-12 July inclusive: they've changed the schedule a little bit, playing eleven rounds where they've previously played ten (and going from a Friday to a Sunday rather than a Thursday to a Saturday). An entry form with information in English* can be found by clicking here.

Last year more than four hundred players attended, including dozens of titled players. You'd be welcome.

Once more I think I'd love to go ... and once more this year doesn't seem the right time (exam in June, dissertation due in September).

Perhaps 2010
