14/03/2024 – From March 12 to 21, the men’s and women’s sections of the American Cup 2024 take place in St. Louis (USA), in a tournament with the now fashionable “double elimination” format. In this cup system, participants first play a first leg at 90’+30” followed by a fast 15’+10” game. The following day, the return match follows the same pattern. If the players are tied, a playoff consisting of a 3’+2” blitz determines the winner. If there is still a tie, another blitz match is played until a decisive result is reached. The losers then play in the consolation round, where the return matches each consist of two fast 15’+10” games. The winner of the consolation round can take on the winner of the top table, and can win the tournament if he or she first beats him or her in the classic+fast format, then confirms by winning the match consisting of a total of four fast games. | Live comments by Yasser Seirawan, Cristian Chirila and Anastasiya Karlovich, Photo: Austin Fuller.
