Finals - Tiebreaks

The FIDE Grand Prix, organized by World Chess, is a 3-event series that features 24 players, each of whom competes in two out of three tournaments.

Each 16-player event consists of a group stage followed by a knockout semifinal and final. At the group stage, the participants compete in four double round-robin tournaments, with only the winners of each pool advancing. Both semifinals and the final consist of two classical games, plus tiebreaks if needed.

Schedule

  • March 22-28 - Group stage (with a rest day on Saturday, March 26)
  • March 29 - Group stage tiebreaks
  • March 30 to April 1 - Semifinals
  • April 2-4 - Final
