Biel/Bienne GM Tournament

The GM Tournament is the highlight of the 2020 Biel/Bienne International Chess Festival. The 8-player tournament takes place from 19-29 July 2020 in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, with all three time formats counting towards the final score. For the classical games the players receive 100 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes to the end of the game, plus a 30-second increment starting from move one. A win in a classical game is worth 4 points, with 1.5 points for a draw. In the Rapid (15min+5s) phase a win is worth 2 points and a draw 1 point. The Blitz (3+2) is played as a double round-robin with normal points. In case of a tie for first place chess960 rapid games will be played and, if necessary, a normal Armageddon game.
