The Norway Chess Tournament is an annual closed classical chess tournament. This article is about the 2021 tournament. The 2021 tournament took place at the Clarion Hotel in Stavanger, Norway. It was won by the World Chess Champion, Magnus Carlsen.

Format[]

Each player faces the other players twice, once with white and once with black. If a player wins the classical game, he gets 3 points. If the match is a draw, the players play an armageddon game. Black has draw odds, however White has extra time, 10 minutes to 7. If he wins the armageddon, he gets 1.5 points. If he loses the armageddon, he gets 1 point. An armageddon match counts as half a round. In the armageddon game, players play the same colours as they did in the classical.
