From 7:30 pm until 9:00 pm (London UTC+1 time)
Crazyhouse chess played at 3min per player for the entire game. 90 min arena.
All the rules and conventions of standard chess apply, with the addition of drops, as explained below.
- A captured piece reverses color and goes to the capturing player’s pocket. At any time, instead of making a move with a piece on the board, a player can drop a piece from their pocket onto an empty square on the board.
For example, a check that would result in checkmate in standard chess can be answered in Crazyhouse, if the defender can play a legal drop that blocks the check.
- Drops resulting in immediate checkmate are permitted.
- Pawns may not be dropped on the players’ 1st or 8th ranks.
- Promoted but captured pawns are dropped as pawns.
