The Norway Chess 2023 kicks off on Gukesh’s 17th birthday. The tournament begins with a blitz tournament on 29th of May and then is a classical round robin event.

These are the rules:
Each of the 9 rounds consists of a classical game where a win is worth 2 points and a loss 0. If the players draw they play an Armageddon game, where the winner earns 1.5 points and the loser 1 point. No draw offers are allowed before move 30.

The classical time control is 2 hours for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move only after move 40. For Armageddon White (the same player who had White in the classical game) has 10 minutes to Black’s 7, with a 1-second increment from move 41. Black wins if the game ends in a draw. A tie for 1st place will be decided by two 3+2 blitz games followed, if necessary, by a 5 vs. 4-minute Armageddon game.

  1. Why are you so biased always gukesh this gukesh that ?

  2. I think india could have 4-5 young super GM's in the coming days but nodirbek and firouja are the most promising prospects. They are extremely good in every time control which indian youngsters lack.
