In 2013 the IBC Limburg Open will be held from Friday the 17th until Monday the 20th of May, as usual in the Whitsunday weekend. It is the 7th time already that this tournament is being organised and in this short amount of time it has grown to become one of the biggest chess tournaments in The Netherlands. Who will succeed IM Thomas Henrichs, the winner of 2012? The last few years the number of participants has always been higher then the year before, of course the organisation hopes this trend will continue.
