10th Tal Memorial

The 10th edition of the Tal Memorial is taking place in the new Museum of Russian Impressionism in Moscow, Russia from 26 September to 6 October. The 10-player all-play-all tournament features a stellar line-up, including former World Champions Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand. At stake is a $200,000 prize fund, with $45,000 for 1st place. The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves, then 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1. A tie for 1st will be broken by two 3+2 blitz games and then, if required, by one Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4, but loses in case of a draw. Official website: ruchess.ru
