Biel ACCENTUS Rapid

This year's Biel International Chess Festival kicks off with the ACCENTUS Rapid on July 23, an 8-player knockout tournament featuring former World Champion Anatoly Karpov, veterans Rafael Vaganian and Vlastimil Hort and women's no. 1 Hou Yifan. Each match consists of two rapid games with 10 minutes per player for all moves and a 5-second increment from move 1. If the match is tied an Armageddon game will be played, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website: www.bielchessfestival.ch
