Norway Chess Tournament 2015

The Norway Chess Tournament is one of the most prestigious events all year long and it brings many of the top players together. Without a World Championship match, it’s always a pleasure to see Magnus scare off against the rest of the top Grand Masters.

This year Norway welcomes Magnus Carlsen (Norway), Viswanathan Anand (India), Levon Aronian (Armenia), Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria), Hikaru Nakamura (USA), Fabiano Caruana (Italy), Alexander Grischuk (Russia), Anish Giri (Netherlands), Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (France) and Jon Ludvig Hammer (Norway).

It’s been a few years since Norway has won the hometown crown so Magnus will be carrying the weight of the country on his shoulders as he looks to continue his dominance.
