2019 Superbet Rapid & Blitz

The 2019 Superbet Rapid & Blitz is Europe’s new addition to the tour and will provide another unique location for the 2019 tour participants. The tournament is sponsored by Fundatia Superbet and will see 7 full tour participants and 3 wildcards compete over 9 rounds of rapid and 18 rounds of blitz chess for a prize fund of $150,000. The event will be hosted at the prestigious Stejarii Country Club in Bucharest, an ideal setting for what could well be a pivotal stop as the players fight for one of the four key qualifying spots to the GCT Finals in London.
