Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour Finals benefiting Kiva

The Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour Finals benefiting Kiva is the $300,000 4-player grand finale of the Tour and takes place from 9-20 August 2020 on chess24. Magnus Carlsen and Daniil Dubov won previous Tour events, while Hikaru Nakamura and Ding Liren qualified as the best performing players not to win an event (since Magnus won 3 out of 4). The semi-finals are best of 5 sets, while the final is best of 7. Each set consists of 4 rapid games with 15 minutes per player for all moves, plus a 10-second increment per move. If the score is tied 2:2 then two 5+3 blitz games are played. If still tied an Armageddon game is played, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4, but a draw means Black wins the set. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website: chess24.com/tour
