The 16th Unive Tournament will take place from 19 - 27 October in Hoogeveen, Netherlands.
The main event is the Crown Group, a 4-player double round robin featuring reigning US Champion Hikaru Nakamura (pictured), the #2 ranked junior Anish Giri, the women's world champion Hou Yifan, and the experienced campaigner Sergei Tiviakov.
There is also a strong 9-round Swiss Open (won last year by Sergei Tivakov) and two amateur events.
Hikaru Nakamura and Anish Giri will both be hoping for a strong result in Hoogeveen after sharing last place in the 2012 London Grand Prix.
