Cancellation GRENKE Chess Classic 2020

Due to the effects of the widespread corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), the GRENKE Chess Classic cannot take place as planned this year and therefore we have to cancel the event.  We already had to cancel the GRENKE Chess Open a few weeks ago. Since it is very difficult to predict the further developments in connection with the coronavirus, we do not see any possibilities to find an alternative date later this year.

The GRENKE Chess Classic and Open team hopes to be able to organize the event again next year, at Easter 2021.
