The venue is located near Dunkerque at the northernmost tip of France

The rate of play at this even was 100 minutes plus 30 seconds increment per move for the first forty moves; then 30 minutes plus 30 seconds per move for the next forty moves; then 10 additional seconds per move from move 81 to the end of the game. Players had to keep score for the first 80 moves.

These time controls mean that a 40 move game cannot last longer than (100 + 20) x 2, i.e. 240 minutes (four hours). For an 80 move game one must add (30 + 20) x 2, i.e.100 minutes (one hour 40 minutes) with a total duration of five hours 40 minutes, which would be increased by 20 seconds for each additional move. It would need a 140 move game to exceed six hours of play.

The rules governing players’ behaviour included the following: no analysis or conversations between players are allowed in the playing hall. The arbiter was entitled to award a loss to a player if:

  • the player is in possession of a sound device which has just rung out, or
  • the player has sought or obtained exterior aid (advice, documents on paper or in electronic form…)
