Norway Chess 2016

The 4th annual Norway Chess tournament is a 10-player round-robin played from April 18-30 in Stavanger, Norway. Now sponsored by Altibox, Norway Chess has in a few years become not only a world-class chess event, but also one of the strongest chess tournaments in the world. The top seed is World Champion Magnus Carlsen. Players receive 100 minutes for the first 40 moves, then 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes for the rest of the game with a 30-second bonus per move starting from move 61. In case of a tiebreak, two blitz games are played followed, if necessary, by Armageddon. Official website: norwaychess.no
