World Champion Magnus Carlsen and 11 more of the world's best chess players are competing in the Chessable Masters by chess24, the 3rd event in the $1 million Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour, taking place from June 20 to July 5. The final 8 play a knockout, with each match played as best of 3 sets, where each set consists of 4 rapid games. If a match ends 2:2 then two blitz games will be played followed, if necessary, by Armageddon. The rapid time control is 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment from move 1. The blitz time control is 5 minutes for all moves, with a 3-second increment from move 1. For Armageddon games White gets 5 minutes to Black's 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black.
