The 2021 FIDE World Chess Championship.

Posted by ian on November 25, 2021 at 6:35 AM Comments comments (0)

The 2021 FIDE World Chess Championship is a 14-game match taking place

in the Dubai Exhibition Centre in the United Arab Emirates from November

Friday 26th to Wednesday December 15 between reigning Norwegian World Champion Magnus

Carlsen and his Russian Challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi. The first player

to reach 7.5 points wins, while a 7:7 tie will be decided by a playoff.

The prize fund is €2 million, split 60:40, or 55:45 if it goes to a

playoff. No draw offers are allowed until after move 40. Each player has

120 minutes for 40 moves, then 60 minutes for the next 20, then 15

minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment starting only

from move 61. A playoff will consist of four 25-minute games, with a

10-second increment from move 1. If still tied two 5+3 games are played,

then up to four more such pairs of games. If still tied we get an

Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw

counts as a win for Black. A 2-second increment is added only from move 61.
