Gibraltar Masters

The 17th Gibraltar Masters is taking place in the Caleta Hotel, Gibraltar from 22-31 January 2019. The 10-round, 250-player open sees stars such as Aronian, MVL, Nakamura and So compete for a £25,000 first prize, while the women's top prize of £15,000 has again attracted many of the world's best female players. Players receive 100 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes until the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move one. A tie for first place will be settled in a speed play-off. The Gibraltar Chess Festival also features four separate amateur tournaments. Official website: www.gibchess.com
