Magnus Carlsen is bookies favourite to win the upcoming Norway Chess 2024 tournament

Betting is now available on the Norway Chess 2024 tournament with five-time winner Magnus Carlsen the clear favourite at 1/2 to win the event which kicks off later this month.

The 12th edition of the Norway Chess tournament features six players that take part in a double round-robin tournament with 10 rounds of classical games.

Round 1 gets underway on May 29th with the final rounds taking place across the 6th and 7th June so we've got a good chunk of chess to enjoy in the coming weeks.

Bookmakers have Carlsen as the favourite to once again win the Norway Chess tournament with the Norwegian looking to do much better than last year's 6th place performance.

Norway Chess has Amageddon's as part of the format too with any players who draw having to play an Amageddon match afterwards to force a result.
