Opera Euro Rapid | Knockout

Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime vs. Carlsen, Magnus

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen tops the field for the Opera Euro Rapid, the 3rd stage of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour. The 16-player event will be played online on chess24 from February 6th to 14th and features a $100,000 prize fund, with $30,000 for 1st place. The knockout stage features two days of 4-game rapid matches at a time control of 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment from move 1. If tied 1:1 after the two matches the players will play two 5+3 blitz games. If the score is still tied they play Armageddon, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website: championschesstour.com
