The 2nd event of the Magnus Carlsen Tour, it has a $150,000 prize fund with $45,000 for 1st place. The winner qualifies for the $300,000 Grand Final in August. 8 players play the knockout stage, where each clash is decided by a series of 3 mini-matches. Each mini-match consists of 4 rapid games where the time control is 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment after each move. If the score is 2:2 an Armageddon game is played, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website: chess24.com/tour
