2023 Norway Chess schedule, date, time, venue, format, & participants
It is confirmed that ten participants will participate in the 2023 Norway Chess including the defending champion Magnus Carlsen. The Tournament is a round-robin competition with Armageddon format, where Berger tables will be used to perform the pairings. In this competition, there are nine classical rounds followed by a blitz event. In a match, each player will have 120 minutes, with 10-second increments, on the clock after move 40.
The players will be sent to Armageddon within 20 minutes of the draw if the traditional game is tied. Each game will have a winner since the black pieces will prevail in a tie-breer situation. As per the format, each victory in the main game will result in 3 points for the winner. Meanwhile, a player will receive 1.5 points if he draws in the main game but triumphs in Armageddon. Alternatively, the player can receive 1 point if he ties in the main game and loses in the Armageddon.
