[lang_nl]In de FIDE Grand Prix-serie waarvan zondag het eerste toernooi officieel wordt geopend in Bakoe, gelden speciale regels.[/lang_nl][lang_en]In the FIDE Grand Prix series, of which the first event is officially opened on Sunday in Baku, special rules apply.[/lang_en]

[lang_nl]Hieronder vind je enkele speciale regels die gelden in de Grand Prix:

Tijdscontrole: 120 minuten voor de eerste 40 zetten, dan 60 minuten voor de volgende 20 zetten en dan krijgt elke speler 15 minuten na de tweede tijdcontrole plus 30 seconden increment om de partij te be?ɬ´indigen.

Spelers mogen niet direct remise aanbieden aan hun tegenstanders. Een remise mag alleen worden overeengekomen via de hoofdarbiter in de volgende gevallen:

  • drie keer dezelfde stelling,
  • eeuwig schaak,
  • theoretische remisestelling en
  • de 50-zettenregel (de speler schrijft de zet op zijn notatieformulier en en verklaart aan de arbiter dat hij van plan is de zet wil gaan spelen die erin resulteert dat er 50 zetten lang niets is geslagen en geen pionnen zijn gespeeld).

De hoofdarbiter mag met de technische adviseur overleggen voordat hij de remiseclaim accepteert. De hoofdarbiter is de enige persoon die in dergelijke gevallen de uitslag bepaalt.

De spelers moeten zich beschikbaar stellen voor korte interviews meteen na de partij. In het algemeen zijn beide spelers beschikbaar voor de dagelijkse persconferentie.

Spelers behoren aanwezig te zijn bij alle offici?ɬ´le aangelegenheden, bepaald door de FIDE President of zijn afgevaardigde, inclusief official receptions and the opening and closing ceremonies.

Spelers wordt vooral verzocht zich op de hoogte te stellen van de vereisten van FIDE Regulations C.01 (Artikel 8.1) als het gaat om een beschaafd voorkomen gedurende het evenement.

Prijzengeld

Het aanbevolen prijzengeld dat door de organiserende steden wordt verzorgd voor elk toernooi bedraagt 212.000 euros en wordt verdeeld in 162.000 euros als direct prijzengeld voor het toernooi en 50.000 euro als toevoeging aan een oplopend prijzengeld voor de spelers aan het eind van de serie:

In het geval van gelijk eindigen in elk toernooi zullen Grand Prix-punten en prijzengeld gelijk worden verdeeld. De uiteindelijke winnaar van de Grand Prix is degene die meeste cumulatieve punten heeft verzameld. De cumulative score wordt bepaald over de beste drie resultaten per speler. De winnaar van de Grand Prix accepteert deelname aan een match tegen de winnaar van de World Cup 2009.[/lang_nl][lang_en]Here you'll find some interesting rules applying in this Grand Prix Series:

Time control: 120 minutes for the first forty moves, 60 minutes for the next twenty moves and then each player will be allotted 15 minutes after the second time control and an increment of 30 seconds per move will be allowed from move 61 onwards.

Players will not be allowed to offer draws directly to their opponents. Any draw claim will be permitted only through the Chief Arbiter in the following cases:

  • a triple-repetition of the position,
  • a perpetual check,
  • in theoretically drawn position and
  • applying the rule of 50 moves (he writes his move on his scoresheet, and declares to the arbiter his intention to make this move which shall result in the last 50 moves having been made by each player without the movement of any pawn and without any capture, or the last 50 consecutive moves have been made by each player without the movement of any pawn and without any capture).

The Chief Arbiter may consult with the Technical Adviser before accepting any claim by players for a draw. The Chief Arbiter is the only authority who can acknowledge the final result of the game in these cases.

The players are required to make themselves available for short interviews immediately after each game. In general, both players shall be available for the daily press conference.

Players are required to be present at all official functions approved by FIDE President or his representative during the Tournament including official receptions and the opening and closing ceremonies.

Players are specifically requested to note the requirements of FIDE Regulations C.01 (Article 8.1) in respect of their dignified appearance at all times during the event.

Prize money

The recommended prize money which will be offered by host city organisers for each tournament is 212,000 Euros and is split 162,000 Euros as direct prize money for the tournament and 50,000 Euros towards an accumulated prize fund for the players at the end of the series:

In the case of any tie in any tournament, the Grand Prix ranking points and prize money will be split equally. The overall winner of the Grand Prix will be the one who will score the most number of cumulative points. The cumulative score will be calculated from the best three results for each player. The winner of the Grand prix agrees to play a match against the winner of the 2009 World Cup.[/lang_en]

anyone know what time the games begin?

dolle toren's picture

wat is 'niet direct remise aanbieden?' <30 zetten o.i.d.

My_Name_Is...oh, never mind's picture

Where is the Round 1 report on the Baku tournament? Usually ChessVibes easily beats ChessBase in getting the information on the tournaments, but this time around ChessBase got a report in first!

But if the ChessVibes analysis is good, then its well worth the wait...

Let say they for some reason keep GP point and bonus point separated till the end.

If player A has one win and two third spots he will have 380 GP points pluss 60 bonus.

If player B has two second spots and one third spot he will have 380 GP points pluss 50 bonus. Then Player A is overall winner

I havent understood why in these round robin events that arent "double" they dont have an odd number of players...it is unfair that half of them will have white one more time after all. not unfair as in biased, since it is random who gets it, but it just seems unnessecary....

Het lijkt mij dat je dus tegen de hoofdarbiter moet zeggen dat je remise wilt aanbieden - hij bepaalt dan of de stelling remise is of dat er doorgespeeld moet worden.

There is no difference. Victor gets 180 points. The idea is that there should be an incentive to fight for 1st place and not drawing the final rounds to reach a secure 3ish-4ish rank. The other incentive is the fact that one result is removed, so you can take some risks.

Ben's picture

That does seem a bit odd to me Silken. Don't get me wrong - I prefer fighting chess in tournaments as well. But why call the +40 the winner gets 'bonus' points and not just 'the winner gets 180 points'?

Ben's picture

Peter,

Do you know what's the difference from the 'normal' points from the 'bonus' points the first three places can earn? If I read it like it's now, it seems that the winner just gets 180 points total?

Regards,
Ben
