    Norway Chess 2021 Sep.7-17

    Norway Chess is a 6-player double round-robin featuring Magnus Carlsen and taking place in Stavanger, Norway from 7-17 September. Each of the 10 rounds consists of a classical game where a win is worth 3 points and a loss 0. If the players draw they play an Armageddon game, where the winner earns 1.5 points and the loser 1 point. No draw offers are allowed before move 30. The classical time control is 2 hours for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move only after move 40. For Armageddon White (the same player who had White in the classical game) has 10 minutes to Black's 7, with a 1-second increment from move 41. Black wins if the game ends in a draw. A tie for 1st place will be decided by two 3+2 blitz games followed, if necessary, by a 5 vs. 4-minute Armageddon game.
    Code:
    1	Carlsen, Magnus	   2855
    2	Nepomniachtchi, I  2792
    3	Rapport, Richard   2760
    4	Karjakin, Sergey   2758
    5	Firouzja, Alireza  2754
    6	Tari, Aryan        2642
    Games start 0100 AEST Sep.8

    Weird scoring system. For example, Magnus drew both classical games so far (vs Alireza and Tari), and won both armas, (1 being by drawing with black) and is on 3/7.

    1 Rapport, Richard 4/6.5
    2 Carlsen, Magnus 3/7
    3 Firouzja, Alireza 2/7
    4 Nepomniachtchi, Ian 1/3.5
    5 Karjakin, Sergey 1/3.5
    6 Tari, Aryan 1/6.5

    Edit: Nepo-Karjakin Rd1 match has been delayed, which explains some of the weirdness.

    Code:
    Due to visa issues, Ian Nepomniachtchi was prevented from boarding his flight and had to have a new visa issued to go to Norway.

    He missed the first round.I prefer the 10 player single round-robin to the current format.I find it's more interesting.

    Carlsen-Nepo tomorrow. I'm predicting dull draws in both their classical clashes. I don't think either will want to reveal much this close to the WC match.

    Carlsen-Nepo 39 move draw in the Berlin, Magnus won the arma game.

    Progress score with Nepo-Karjakin still a game in hand:

    1 Rapport, Richard 8/13
    2 Carlsen, Magnus 6/14
    3 Karjakin, Sergey 4/10.5
    4 Nepomniachtchi, Ian 4/10.5
    5 Firouzja, Alireza 3/13.5
    6 Tari, Aryan 3/13.5

    Nepo joined Rapport as a classical game winner by defeating Karjakin in their delayed round 1 game.

    I am not sure why it is sad, but yes Karjakin beat Carlsen.

    Firouzja also beat Tari

    Round 7 saw all decisive classical games for the first time. Carlsen (B) def Tari, Rapport def Karjakin, and Alireza outplayed the WC challenger in an Italian.

    Carlsen has white vs Rapport in R8 and will need to win to try to close the gap.

    1 Rapport, Richard 15/22.5
    2 Carlsen, Magnus 12/23
    3 Nepomniachtchi, Ian 9/23.5
    4 Firouzja, Alireza 9/22.5
    5 Karjakin, Sergey 8/23
    6 Tari, Aryan 3/22.5

    Yes that has certainly bunched together the field. Much will depend on Nepo's last 2 games as he has still to face Carlsen and Rapport.

    1 Rapport, Richard 15/25.5
    2 Carlsen, Magnus 15/26
    3 Firouzja, Alireza 12/25.5
    4 Nepomniachtchi, Ian 9/26.5
    5 Karjakin, Sergey 8/26
    6 Tari, Aryan 6/25.5
