Armageddon Championship Series is a season of ultra-fast blitz tournaments with continental qualifiers and a Grand Finale event. The Series consists of seven-day double-elimination tournaments (if a player loses a match, he or she can still win the tournament and is eliminated after a second loss). Matches consist of two blitz games (3 minutes plus a 2-second move increment) and, if necessary, an Armageddon (5 minutes for White, 4 minutes for Black). There are two matches per day. The top two players of each event secure two places in the Grand Finale. All games are broadcast live from the Armageddon Studio in Berlin, and the total event prize fund of the Series is €460 000. The Series is organized by World Chess.

Commentators GM Simon Williams and IM Jovanka Houska will do their best to keep up.

  13. Such a impressive play by Sam can't wait to see him in final in September and Congrats to Wesley.

  14. I have been following the games of Wesley So, undoubtedly elite, a very strong player, has proven himself a true champion in many strong tournaments, has beaten Magnus in finals of 2 big tournaments, has won the Chess Grand Tour twice, etc, too countless to count and can definitely play in any time control – yet amazingly very modest and defers to the other players and always show gratefulness for the tournaments he is part of whether he wins it all or not. That’s what make him different from all other great, elite players.

    Big congratulations, Wesley, keep going, you’re doing great, and great ambassador of Chess, likewise always glorify God in your life and for the talent He gave you for His glory👏👏👏🎉🎉🎉

  17. Xie Jin poo got excited and offered organiser money 💰 to let tingtangtong win but the money turned into rice. Hey chingwah where's the fried rice 🍚🍚🍚

  18. Wesley said he wasn't superstitious but keeps to the same clothes when he wins. Now if that isn't superstitious then I don't know what is.
