The official announcement of the 41st Ikaros International Chess Tournament 2018 is out containing all the details about the tournament. It can be found here or can be downloaded in .doc or .pdf format.

This year, despite the shifting of the tournament dates after mid July (which means that the room prices are generally higher) once more, the overall participation cost is kept low (the basic package per person in a double room costs 180 euros for the period 16-22 July and includes accommodation (the board expenses are not included), free entry to the tournament, daily transportation to the playing venue and transportation from and to the port of Evdilos, in case this is necessary due to the ferry schedule on 16th and 22nd of July). Prices get lower in case of triple of four bed rooms, while, as also every year, there are special discounts for families, juniors, club teams, unemployed and persons with disabilities. Moreover, there are additional discounts for those who will pay early. Additionally, this year too, the organization committee will try to get reduced ferry ticket prices for the tournament participants.

The tournament will be held in two groups: Group A for players with FIDE rating ≥ 1500 and Group B for players with FIDE rating ≤ 1700 (players between 1500 and 1700 can choose in which group they wish to play). Group A will play 9 rounds, while Group B will play 7 rounds so as that the schedule is less tight and the participants have the opportunity to enjoy their holidays even more.
