The 2018 Ten Minute Handicap was a novelty event, designed to level the playing field between higher and lower rated players.

Each player started with 10 minutes each to complete all their moves. The higher rated player was then deducted 1 minute, and the lower rated player awarded 1 minute extra playing time, for each 100 points difference (rounded down to the nearest 100 points, with a maximum penalty of 9 minutes).
This made for a much closer contest!
