Dortmund…the 7th largest city in Germany, the 34th largest in the European Union.
Sparkassen Chess Meeting from 28th June to 6th July
The Dortmund Sparkassen Chess Meeting is an elite chess tournament held every summer in Dortmund, Germany. It is one of the three “majors” on the chess tournament circuit along with Corus and Linares. The reigning champion is Vladimir Kramnik.
Dortmund is an invite-only event, and only the strongest grandmasters are invited. The exception is that one slot at Dortmund is awarded to the winner of the annual Aeroflot Open in Moscow, a tournament that anyone with an Elo of at least 2550 is welcome to enter.
The tournament is usually played in a round-robin or double round-robin format. However, it took the form of a series of heads-up matches in 2002 and 2004.

From 28th June to 6th July 2008 everything in Dortmund’s Civic Theatre will once again revolve around chess. Eight Grand Masters will compete for points and victories during this year’s Sparkassen Chess Meeting. The spectators at the classical chess tournament with the richest tradition in Germany can look forward to exciting games at this attractive venue. The festival mood of the Sparkassen Chess Meeting is heightened by the Sparkassen Open that will be played in Dortmund Town Hall.
The tournament rules: there will be a total of seven rounds so that each of the eight grand masters will play each opponent once. Once again the spectators in the Civic Theatre can follow the matches of the chess stars closely and in a pleasant environment: all games will be displayed live on big screens, and the German Grand Masters Dr Helmut Pfleger and Klaus Bischoff will provide live commentaries via headphones.

Vladimir Kramnik (pictured) was born on 25 June 1975 in Tuapse, on the shores of the Black Sea in Russia. His father was Boris, a renowned sculptor and his mother was Irina, a music teacher. He learnt to play chess at the age of 5 and by the time he was 12 he was studying at the prestigious Botvinnik school in Moscow.
At 16 he won the World under-18 Championship and emerged onto the world chess scene with a Gold Medal at the 1992 chess olympiad in Manila.
In 2000 Vladimir Kramnik achieved what few had thought possible; he defeated the great Garry Kasparov 8.5-6.5 to take the title of World Chess Champion without losing a single game.
He successfully defended his title against Peter Leko in 2004 by dramatically winning the final game to tie the 14-game match 7-7. In 2006 he beat Veselin Topalov in a hugely controversial match which reunified the competing versions of the World Chess Championship title.
At the end of 2006 he married Marie-Laure Germon, a French journalist (pictured with Kramnik below).
He put his title on the line by agreeing to play in the World Championship Tournament in Mexico City in September 2007 against a world class field. Vishy Anand won the event to end Kramnik’s reign as World Champion.
Kramnik will have an opportunity to regain his title in October 2008 when he challenges Anand for the title in a match to be held in Bonn, Germany.
