Nutcracker Battle of the Generations

Morozevich, Alexander vs. Dubov, Daniil

The traditional Christmas Nutcracker tournament is taking place in the Central Chess Club in Moscow from 17-22 December. It consists of two Scheveningen matches: Kings vs. Princes and Queens vs. Princesses. In the main event Gelfand, Morozevich, Shirov and Dreev take on Fedoseev, Dubov, Artemiev and Oparin, with the top scorer overall qualifying for the 2017 Korchnoi Zurich Chess Challenge. Each player first plays a classical game (90 minutes/40 moves + a 30-second increment from move 1) against each member of the opposing team. Then they play two rapid games (15 minutes/all moves + a 10-second increment) against each opposing player. The classical games are worth double i.e. 2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw.
