85th Brazil Championship !
Quick 1-Minute Summary
This year’s championship is taking place in Natal, between the 29th of January and the 7th of February. An interesting knock-out match format: each round consists of two classical games (90 min + 30′); if drawn, then two rapid games (25 min + 10′); if again drawn then two blitz games (3 min + 2′); and if finally still drawn, then an Armagedon game. Theoretically, each mini-match can go 7 games!
The very final match will see 4 classical games, followed by, if necessary, the same tie-break system. You can read the precise rules HERE.
