  whiteshark: The chess Bundesliga is one of the world’s top chess leagues, with the <16 teams> competing for the German Championship attracting some of the world’s best players.

Each team plays each other once over the season, with a team on any day consisting of 8 players from a starting list of 18.

A match win earns two match points and a draw is worth one. For the final standings match points come first, followed by game points.

The season is split into six weekend double rounds, starting at 2pm on Saturdays and 10am on Sundays in four changing venues around Germany. The rounds 9-11 are played in one long weekend in Berlin.

Players receive 100 minutes for the first 40 moves followed by 50 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second increment from move one.

  whiteshark: "The last weekend of Germany's Premier League, (a.k.a. the Bundesliga), brought the perennial champions OSG Baden-Baden another success. With a 7-1 victory against Düsseldorf, Baden-Baden once again became German Team Champion, securing their 13th title in 14 years. [...]

Top scorer of the season is the Latvian grandmaster Igor Kovalenko (SC Viernheim) with 10½/12 (9 wins, 3 draws). Richard Rapport (Baden-Baden, 10½/13) and Mads Andersen (SG Solingen, 10½/14) reached the same number of points but played more games."
