The 15th edition of the Unive tournament will take place from 14-22 October in Hoogeveen in the Netherlands.

The 'Crown Group' of the Unive festival is a 4-player double round-robin competition.

Last year's winner Maxime Vachier-Lagrave is back to defend his crown, but this year he will have even stronger opposition to contend with. Challenging him will be Anish Giri, who also took part last year, top seeded Vladimir Kramnik and the #1 women's player Judit Polgar.
