11th Tal Memorial - Blitz

The Tal Memorial Blitz is a 14-player single round-robin taking place in the Botvinnik Central Chess Club in Moscow on 5 March. The players are competing for a $30,000 prize fund, with $10,000 for 1st place. Players have 5 minutes for all moves, with a 3-second increment from move 1. Prizes aren't shared, and a tie for first results in a playoff. If two 5+3 games don't produce a winner an Armageddon game will be played with 5 minutes for White and 4 for Black.
