Three Swiss-system tournaments with the classical time control will be held within the Aeroflot Open-2015 which is re-launched in Russia this year as Chess-News has already reported. The highlight will be the A-tournament open for players with Elo 2550 or higher. The playing dates are March 29th - April 6th, with all the rounds of the tournaments A and B beginning at 15:00 Moscow time. On April 7th, the open blitz tournament will be held (Swiss system, 9 double rounds). Each event of the festival will take place in the Cosmos hotel in Moscow.

Many traditional features of the old editions have been restored, including the one which provides the winner of the A-tournament with an invitation to the round-robin supertournament in Dortmund scheduled for this summer. The prize fund and the package prices are in Euro; the prize pool of the A-tournament amounts to 18.000 Euro (30 prizes total).

The organizers have kept their word and published the regulations on time: the Word files (in English and Russian) can be downloaded by clicking the links below the text (see also the announcement in Russian on the RCF website).

UPD: The organizers have made corrections: the playing dates are March 27th - April 4th, the blitz tournament will be held on April 5th. See the new regulations attached.
