Altibox Norway Chess

Carlsen, Magnus vs. Ding, Liren

The 7th edition of Altibox Norway Chess is a 10-player round-robin featuring World Champion Magnus Carlsen and six more of the world's Top 10 players. It takes place from 3-15 June in the Clarion Energy Hotel and Stavanger Concert Hall in Stavanger. Classical games are worth 2 points for a win, but in case of a draw players get half a point and play an Armageddon game for the remaining point. Players receive 2 hours for each classical game, with a 10-second increment only after move 40. No draw offers are allowed until move 30. In the Armageddon game White has 10 minutes to Black's 7, with a 3-second increment from move 61. In case of a draw the player with Black gets the full point. If there's a tie for first at the end of the tournament a 3+2 blitz playoff will take place. Official website: norwaychess.no
