San Fermin Banter Blitz Cup | Qualifier A
The San Fermin Banter Blitz Cup Qualifiers are 8-player knockout tournaments on chess24 where all the players are required to stream their thoughts as they play. Only the winner of each of the 8 qualifiers advances to the 8-player round-robin San Fermin Banter Blitz Cup Final, where the top 2 qualify to either one leg of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour or to the San Fermin Mundial. The winner can choose.
Each match consists of eight 3+2 blitz games, so that winner is the first to reach 4.5 points. If the players are tied another pair of 3+2 games is played. If still tied the match will be decided in an Armageddon game (5 vs. 4 minutes with draw odds for Black).
