The TePe Sigeman & Co Chess Tournament is back in Malmo, Sweden. The tournament was held for the first time in 1993, and was played yearly until it was discontinued in 2014. For good, many feared. But it's back, with Pavel Eljanov, Nigel Short, Baadur Jobava, Nils Grandelius, Erik Blomqvist and Harika Dronavalli, who will fight for the first prize in the 5-round tournament.
