Ding Liren vs. Giri

Chinese no. 1 Ding Liren is playing a 4-game classical match against Dutch no. 1 Anish Giri in Wenzhou, China from 08-11 August 2017. The winner gets $20,000, the loser $10,000. The time control is 90 minutes for 40 moves then 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1. If the match is drawn the players compete in two games of 25+10 rapid chess, then if needed two 5+3 blitz games and, finally, one Armageddon game where White has 6 minutes to Black's 5, but a draw counts as a victory for Black.
