Re: armageddon in norway chess

So Norway chess round 1 concluded with 5 draws, but White won 4-1 in the 10-7 (+3 sec inc from move 60) Armageddon game, Black getting less time but draw oddss. This suggests that Armageddon is valid in longer games than blitz, as was also shown in some U.S. Championship playoff games at odds like ...

Re: armageddon in norway chess

You could just score draws as losses from White pov. And engines would naturally play "armageddon" games correctly. Be Yes, that would help, but requires modifying the engine, not just using an existing one, and it's hardly a full solution, as by the time the engine sees the draw it's usually too l...
