3rd Leg of Grand Prix Chess Tournament

June 16

Blitz Swiss System, 9 rounds – 5′ + 3″

The Chess Grand Prix 2024 events are regular standalone chess tournaments that are connected to become the Grand Prix series, where each event contributes to the overall ranking of participants at the end of the season when prize money are awarded. At the end of the CGP 2024 Season, bonus payments totalling EUR 300 will be paid out to the top 3 finalists based on the accumulated CGP Points over the season. One goal of the CGP 2024 is to promote chess tournaments in Cyprus and to have fun and add excitement and significance to each competition. Play in one event or all six, and follow the progress of the race on our scoreboard! Have a look at last season’s CCT2023 scoreboard to see how things played out in 2023. We’ll unveil a new scoreboard in 2024.

GP Points shall be awarded based on the final ranking of player in each event as set out below. The same point allocations shall apply to both the rapid and blitz events.
