Russian Chess Federation published on their website the regulations of the eighth Tal Memorial, which will be held in the Center of New Technologies "Digital October" in Moscow, June 12 to 23.

Requirements towards the participants are rather benign in comparison to today's standards:

  • Participants are required to strictly follow the schedule of the tournament. In case if a player is late for his game for an hour or more, he is announced defeated;
  • Participants are not allowed to engage negotiations regarding a draw up to the 40th move, inclusive;
  • Participants - in case they did not lose (win, draw) - are obliged to comment on their games in the press center after each round.
  • Participants are not allowed to bring electronic and communication devices to the playing area. Mobile phones and other electronic devices have to be left to the main arbiter.

Ten of the following grandmasters will compete for the main prize of 30,000 euros:

Magnus Carlsen (Norway, 2868)
Vladimir Kramnik (Russia, 2811)
Viswanathan Anand (India, 2783)
Hikaru Nakamura (USA, 2775)
Fabiano Caruana (Italy, 2774)
Sergey Karjakin (Russia, 2767)
Alexander Morozevich (Russia, 2760)
Boris Gelfand (Israel, 2744)
Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Azerbaijan, 2726)
Dmitry Andreikin (Russia, 2724)

On June 12, the day of the opening, a blitz tournament will be held, the results of which will determine the players' places in the table of the main event.
