Tata Steel Masters
The 2017 Tata Steel Masters is taking place from 14-29 January. The 79th edition of the tournament is a 14-player single round-robin featuring five Top 10 players including World Champion Magnus Carlsen and his challenger Sergey Karjakin. As well as the traditional venue in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands, rounds will be played in the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam (19 January) and De Philharmonie in Haarlem (25 January).
The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second increment per move from move 1. If two or more players tie for first place then a rapid or blitz playoff will be held, though the monetary prizes will be shared evenly. Official website: www.tatasteelchess.com
