FIDE World Blitz Championship 2019
The 2019 King Salman FIDE World Blitz Championship was a 21-round Swiss open (for players rated -) 2550) held at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Russia, 29-30 December, with the participation of 159 GM’s, including defending champion Magnus Carlsen. The prize fund was $350,000, with $60,000 to the winner. Time control: 3 minutes per player for all moves, with 2 seconds added per move from move one. If there was a tie for 1st place, the top two players according to the first eligible tiebreak criterion would compete in a play-off match consisting of two 3+2 blitz games. If the score was still level, the players would play a sudden death or Armageddon game (in which the player with the white pieces would get 5 minutes to Black’s 4, with a 2-second increment per move after move 60, while a draw counted as a win for Black). No players with baseball caps, t-shirts, jeans, shorts, sneakers or inappropriate dress were allowed in the playing area. No penalty was imposed on a player if he was late for any of his games. Chief arbiter: Panagiotis Nikolopoulos.
