Alchemist Cup 2020 will be held at Genting Highland Resort, Malaysia. 9 games per day will be played from Dec 2 till 6, 2020. Ten teams of 5 players will play 45 rounds. Australia will be one of these teams.
The fifty players will be among the best in the world. But there is also straight afterward another even more elite event, the Candidates Tournament. 10 Candidates will be selected out of 50 players at Alchemist Cup 2020. They will play 3 full round-robin (27 games) in Candidates Tournament from Dec 7 till 9, 2020. The Winner earns the right to challenge the Alchemist Champion in Alchemist Showdown 2021 (two top players only). Selection of 10 Candidates will be at sole discretion by the Organizer but he/she will need to have at least 2000 WESPA rating points. Moving forward, Alchemist Showdown will be alternating with Alchemist Cup every other year.
The primary criterion for ranking candidates is the Q statistic calculated like this:
The secondary criterion is number of rated games within the qualification period. If two players have the same Q statistic, the one with the greater number of rated games in the qualification period is ranked higher.
