Altibox Norway Chess 2020 will take place between October 5-16 at Clarion Hotel Energy in Stavanger, Norway.
The Tournament is a double round-robin event and consists of 10 rounds. Players play each other twice and colors are reversed the second time.
If there is a draw in the classical game then the players will move on to Armageddon within 20 minutes after the draw. White pieces will continue with white in Armageddon. With this, there will be a winner in each game due to the fact that black pieces will win if the game ends in a draw.
Time control main game: - each player will have 120 minutes on the clock with an increment of 10 seconds after move 40.
Time control Armageddon game: - white has 10 minutes and black has 7 minutes with an increment of 1 second per move, starting from move 41.
Players are not allowed to agree on a draw until after move 30.
Players will get following points per round: - Victory main game: 3 points - Loss main game: 0 points - Draw main game & victory Armageddon: 1.5 points - Draw main game & loss Armageddon: 1 point
In case of shared first place, there will be a blitz play-off to decide the winner. If two players share first place, there will be a 2-game match with 3 minutes plus 2 seconds increment for each move. If this match ends in a tie, there will be an Armageddon game where white has 5 minutes and black has 4 minutes with an increment of 3 seconds per move, starting from move 61 with draw odds.
