This event has expired

The 49th Rilton Cup takes place from 27 December 2019 to 5 January 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 9-round Swiss open will feature nearly 300 players from several countries and a 1st prize of 20,000 Swedish Kroner (about €1,900). The event’s namesake Dr. Tore Rilton, who died in 1983, wanted the tournament to be an opportunity for young Swedish talents to challenge strong masters from abroad, and this year’s edition includes 75 players with FIDE titles.

Players receive 90 minutes for 40 moves followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game plus 30 seconds per move starting from move 1.
