Clutch Chess International - The final


Previous reports:


Players will be seeded and paired for individual quarterfinal matches based on their FIDE rapid rating. Since Clutch Chess is a knockout tournament, players who fail to win their match are eliminated from the competition, while players who win their match advance to the next stage of competition.

Each match consists of twelve games with a time control of 10 minutes for the whole game and 5-second increments since move one. The overall score will follow the next system:

  • Games 1-4: Win = 1 point, Draw = ½ point
  • Games 5-6: Win = 2 points, Draw = 1 point
  • Games 7-10: Win = 1 point, Draw = ½ point
  • Games 11-12: Win = 3 points, Draw = 1½ points

The matches will last two days, with six games played per day. Thus, the last two games each day (5-6 and 11-12) are called "clutch games" as they are worth more points than usual.
