Airthings Masters 2022 Chess Rules And Format
At the round-robin phases of The Airthings Masters, the round-robin will employ a football-style 3 point for a win, 1 point for a tie scoring system, and participants will earn cash bonuses for each rapid game played. The players will earn $750 for a victory and $250 for a draw.
Hence, there is still just enough time for players to change their position in the table and qualify for play-offs.
Starting with move 1, the players have 15 minutes to complete all of their moves, plus a 10-second increment. A win earns 3 points, while a tie earns 1 point in the preliminary round.
If a tiebreak is necessary, the players will play two 5+3 games and, if necessary, a single Armageddon game, in which White has 5 minutes against Black’s 4, but a tie count as a win for Black. Before move 40, no draw offers are permitted.
