We have the great pleasure and honor of announcing the participation of the International Grand Master Àlvar Alonso Rosell (GM since 2013).
He was champion of Spain in 2011 beating the mythical GM Miguel Illescas, championship that was played on our island, Menorca.
Other previous important achievements were: Spanish Under-12 Champion (2004), Under-14 (2006) and Under-18 (2009), Youth Catalonia Champion (2008 and 2009) and Absolute (2014). He has also been champion of the last Sitges Open, outperforming Vassily Ivanchuk (ELO 2717).
It is a great honor to be one of the referents of our first Open!
