Preliminaries – Day 1
The tournament features four days of preliminaries, where the 16 participants will play each other once at rapid chess with a time control of 15 minutes plus 10-second increments, before the top 8 go forward to the knockout stages.
The knockout features 4-game matches, one each for the quarterfinals and semifinals, and two matches for the final. If still tied, there are two 5+3 blitz games followed, if needed, by an Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but Black only needs a draw.
- July 10-13: Round-robin (4 rounds per day)
- July 14: Quarterfinals
- July 15: Semifinals
- July 16-17: Finals
