Pro-Biz Cup

The 7th edition of the Pro-Biz Cup is taking place at the The Royal Automobile Club in London on 5 December and gives business people the chance to team up with some of the world's top chess players. The players are auctioned, with all proceeds going to the Chess in Schools and Communities charity. The professional players take turns making moves with their amateur partner in an open tournament where each team has 20 minutes + 5 seconds increment per move for the whole game. Three such games will be played by each team, with blitz or Armageddon deciding the winner if required. Two one-minute time outs will be permitted per game. The team will need to signal to the arbiter that you wish to confer and time outs can only be called when it’s your move. Either player can call a time out. The clocks will be stopped during your time out. After two time outs – no further consultation is permitted. The team that calls the time out remains at the board the other team leaves.
