According the the rules of the Zurich Chess Challenge 2017, the winner of a Classical game is awarded 2 points for the overall standings, in case of a draw each player gets 1 point and the loser 0 points, while a win in a Blitz game is awarded one point and a draw 0,5 points respectively.

The final ranking is determined by:

  1. Total points
  2. Sonneborn-Berger
  3. Number of wins
  4. Number of wins with black
  5. Result of the direct encounters
  6. Ranking in Opening Blitz

Should two players still be equalled first, then an Armageddon game will be played, with white having 6 and black 5 minutes. White needs to win in order to win the tournament, while for black a draw is sufficient.
