The Atomic World Championships 2017 is underway! This is the second year that tipau is organising this tournament. With 44 participants there will be six rounds held in a single elimination bracket. Players face off in a best of 10 format at a 3+2 time control, with each round taking place over a week.
This year's field looks to be strong, with players such as LM onubense, GM Arka50, IM penguingim1 and last year's champion tipau. Watch out for their matches starting from round 2 (6-12 November, although some matches have already been played).
On this blog I'll be providing coverage of each round and analysis of completed matches. I've already looked at 3 matches from Round 1 and more will be added as I catch up.
Enjoy the games!
