British Knockout Championship

The 2019 British Knockout Championship is an 8-player knockout taking place alongside the London Chess Classic at the Olympia Conference Centre from 1-8 December. The quarter-finals are 2-game matches with 90 minutes for all moves and a 30-second increment from move one. If the matches are tied two 10+5 blitz games are played, then an Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. A 2-second increment is added only from move 61. The semifinals matches consist of eight games, two classical (worth 6 points, 130 min for the entire game + 30 sec/move), two rapid (4 points, 25+10) and four blitz (2 points, 5+3). The format of the final was changed during the tournament and now consists of 4 Rapid and 6 Blitz games. In case of a tie, a rapid mini-match (10+5) and an Armageddon game (5 vs 4) will be played.
