Semi-final, Tiebreak

The Hamburg Grand Prix is a knock-out tournament with 16 players. To win a Grand Prix, a player has to defeat opponents in four rounds. Each round consists of two classical games and is followed by faster tie-break games if necessary. Top Grandmasters from nine countries take part in the FIDE World Chess Grand Prix Hamburg 2019. This is the strongest Grand Prix Series in recent history.

Players receive 90 minutes for 40 moves then 30 minutes for the rest of the game, plus 30-seconds per move starting from move 1. If the match is tied after two classical games. A tiebreak will follow on the third day: Two 25+10, then two 10+10 games, then two 5+3, and if still tied a single Armageddon game where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4 (with a 2-second bonus per move starting from move 61) but Black has draw odds.

The venue is Theater Kehrwieder, part of the historic Harbour City district


There are a limited number of spectator seats (tickets via Eventim), which will increase up to 100 as the tournament progresses, as the stage shrinks and shrinks with the number of participants declining after each knockout round.


The Grand Prix is a four-leg series taking place over the course of the year. The first two legs took place in Moscow, Russia and Riga, Latvia. It will be followed by Hamburg, Germany and Jerusalem, Israel. The prize fund of each Grand Prix is 130,000 euros, with an additional 280,000 euros for the overall standings. The top two finishers will also earn the main prize — qualification to the Candidates Tournament where they will contest the right to challenge Magnus Carlsen in the World Championship match.
