The 2nd Batavia Amsterdam Chess Tournament, also called the Max Euwe Challenge, is taking place 19 – 28 February in Cafe Batavia 1920, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The playing venue is located just across Amsterdam Central Station. The tournament is the brainchild of Bas Beekhuizen (chess photographer) and sponsor Peter Tames (Cafe Batavia 1920). In 2010 the Max Euwe Centre joined as a co-sponsor.
