The Sinquefield Cup sees Magnus Carlsen and 9 more of the world's best chess players compete in the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis from 18-27 August 2018.
The event is the penultimate leg of the 2018 Grand Chess Tour, with the tour regulars joined by wild card Magnus Carlsen.
In addition to tour points, the chess prize fund is $300,000, with $75,000 for 1st place. Chess players receive 100 minutes for 40 chess moves then 60 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second delay from move 1.
A tie for first place will be decided in a 2-game Rapid mini-match (10 min + 5 sec delay), only between the top two, and if necessary an Armageddon chess game (5 vs. 4) on 28 August at 13:00 local time.
