Well - GWH pretty much explained it. To the best of my knowledge this is the last year that the tournament will be held in Kitzbuehel. They haven't been paying their bills on time, but as the present contract runs out this year anyway - they decided to just let the contract run til the end and not renew it rather than moving it this year. They have been looking round at Hotels, facilities etc in Romania but nothing has been decided yet - but the fact they have moved the St. Polten tournament to Portschach is to try and keep an event in that part of the world.
And strangely - Kitz is not particularly a favourite tournament of mine though the setting is beautiful (in fact I'll probaby go to Umag instead this year!) - but many of my friends go each year and love it.
