diagonal: It was a special side event of the 2016 Biel Chess Festival: the Blitz Challenge.
The six players from the matches in 2016, Bok, Georgiadis, Studer, Rambaldi, and of course the stars Peter Svidler and Maxime Vachier- Lagrave, would face off in a round-robin (all-play-all) of blitz, according to the rules at Biel, followed then by a final of the two best placed players (even if there is already a clear first).
The two elite players won the round robin and faced each other in a final (meaning actually, it wasn't a play-off).
Final Score Blitz Exhibition Tournament:
1. Svidler, Peter 2759 3.5
2. Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime 2798 3.5
3. Rambaldi, Francesco 2544 2.5

5. Studer, Noel 2462 2.0

MVL thus winning that event, too (he also won the previous match at Biel against Svidler, which combined rapid and classical chess)
