Fischer Random Match - Carlsen - Nakamura 2018

From 9 - 13 February a Fischer Random Match between Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura is held in Høvikodden, near Oslo Norway.

Fischer Random (Fischerandom or Chess960) is a variant of chess invented by the world chess champion Bobby Fischer and popular since 1996. In comparison with the standard chess, the starting position of the pieces on the players' home ranks is randomized. This challenges players through the memorization of opening lines.

Fischer Random World Championship has traditions since 2001. Players like Levon Aronian, Peter Svidler, and Hikaru Nakmaura took part in it.
There will be two games per day during the first 4 days.

The time control is 45 minutes for the first 40 moves and then 15 minutes for the rest of the game, no increment.
The games start at 17.00 and 20.00. (UTC+1)

On the last day there are 8 games: 10 minutes and 5 seconds incremental for each move.

Magnus Carlsen is the winner in the Fischer Random match. Congratulations!
