The 2018 London Chess Classic, taking place from December 11-17, will be a knockout tournament played between the four Grand Chess Tour finalists: Caruana, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, and Nakamura. Google HQ in London will host the semi-final, and the final will be held at the Olympia Conference Centre in Kensington.
The matches consist of eight games, two classical (worth 6 points), two Rapid (4 points) and four Blitz (2 points). In case of a tie, a rapid mini-match (10+5) and an Armageddon (5 vs 4) will be played.
The prize fund is $300,000 with a first prize of $75,000, plus another $100,000 and $50,000 respectively for the top two in the overall 2018 Grand Chess Tour standings. Players receive 100 minutes for 40 moves then 60 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second delay from move 1, for the Rapid (25+5) and the Blitz (3+2). (1)
