The tournament in memory of Yuri Eliseev (1996-2016) will be held at the Tigran Petrosian Chess Club in Moscow on 14-25 November. A talented young grandmaster, World and Russian youth champion, winner of the Moscow Open-2016 tragically died on November 26, 2016. 

The tournament will be held in two rounds with the following time control: 90 minutes for the whole game with an increment of 30 seconds per move starting from move one. The playing days are November 15-19 and 21-25. GMs Vladislav Artemiev, Vladimir Fedoseev, Maxim Matlakov, Daniil Dubov, Alexandr Predke, and Mikhail Antipov will play in the first round; the line-up for the second round will be announced later. 
 
Daniil Dubov: «We have tried to make our tournament as interesting as possible for the spectators and to make emphasis on a creative part of the game, but not on the athletic one. FIDE rating will not be calculated and the prizes will be rewarded only for a beautiful play. The games will start at 3 p.m., after them one of the participants will give a lecture: we will show our games with Yuri and share our reminiscences. The players will comment on their games after the playing session; there also will be a live commenting in a special room for the spectators. We invite all chess lovers to visit the tournament!»
