Zurich Chess Challenge - Blitz

The 4th edition of the Zurich Chess Challenge begins with a blitz tournament on Friday 13 February. Caruana, Anand, Kramnik, Aronian, Nakamura and Karjakin will play each other once over five rounds. The results don’t count for the overall standings but the top 3 get an extra game with the white pieces in the 5-day classical event. The tournament follows the opening ceremony in Zurich's Savoy Baur en Ville Hotel. Although only invited guests can attend both the moves and video will be broadcast live on the official website and chess24. The time control is 4 minutes per player per game, with a 2-second increment from move one.
