Day 2 – Preliminaries
The Israel Chess Federation is hosting the World Team Championship on November 19-26, with twelve teams from all around the world. Much like in the last edition of the Women’s World Team Championship, this tournament is being played under a new format. The participant countries were split into two pools of similar strength, taking as a reference the rapid rating list. The four best teams from each pool will advance to the knockout stage.
The time control is 45 minutes for the whole game with an increment of 10 seconds per move starting from the first move, which means that two rounds can be played per day. The playing venue is the Hotel Dan in Jerusalem.
