The 2022 Candidates Tournament runs from June 17th through July 5th, in Madrid, Spain. It's one of the most important events of the year as the world's chess elite will compete for a chance to dethrone the invincible Magnus Carlsen and win the 2023 World Championship title.
Eight players compete in a double round-robin tournament (14 rounds), with 4 rest days, a final tiebreak in case of a draw, and a â‚¬500,000 prize pool.
This year's Candidates Tournament features eight of the best players in the world, with the chess community keeping an eye on the professional streamer Hikaru Nakamura who qualified from the Grand Prix cycle, and Ding Liren who managed to play 30 games between 1 June 2021 and 30 April 2022 to take over Karjakin's spot as the highest-rated player.
Each round starts at 13:00 UTC and players have 120 minutes for the first 40 moves, 60 minutes for the next 20 moves, then 15 minutes for the rest of the game with a 30-second increment per move starting on move one.
