System of play, the rate of play and ranking of players

The tournaments are Round-Robin tournaments (9 rounds). The playing session will be about 5 hours: 40 moves in the 90 minutes followed by all remaining moves in 30 minutes with the addition of 30 seconds per move from the beginning of the game.

The number of points scored determines the final ranking of players. If two or more players are involved in the tie, then the tie is broken by the number of games played with black pieces, by the number of wins and by the Sonnenborn-Berger system. 

1. The tournament regulations

The current Laws of Chess will be used in the event.

Any player who arrives at the chessboard 30 minutes later after the beginning of playing session shall lose the game. Where both players are absent 30 minutes after the beginning of the session, both players shall lose the game by default.

No postpones shall be allowed.

The offer of a draw is not allowed.

2. Obligations of players

Players are required to attend closing ceremonies.

The players (usually the winners or both players in case of a draw) should give a short statement after the game in the press room.

3. Photography and Television

Only photographers and camera crew expressly authorized by the Administrator may work in the playing venue.

The flash may only be used during the first five minutes of the round.
