The qualifying blitz tournament is planned in today's programme of the Rapid and Blitz World Championship, which is being held in the capital of Kazakhstan. In contrast to the rapid chess, the lightning tournament will be held in one day and consist of eleven double rounds. It starts at 15.00 Moscow time. It's hard to find more detailed information on the official site of the championship. It's only known that the qualified players will be joined in the final by Magnus Carlsen, Teimour Radjabov, Sergey Karjakin, Alexander Morozevich, Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Grischuk, Veselin Topalov, Peter Svidler, Boris Gelfand and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.
The live transmission is still promised for 'later'.

A comment that appeared on our site is characteristic, "I searched all over the Internet and the official site, but I can't find the address of where the tournament is being held". It's true that the exact place of where the tournament is being held isn't advertised to the public. The addresses can be found in the initial press release from the organisers, "The semi-final will be held in the hotel Duman during 2-4 July; the hotel Radisson SAS awaits all participants and spectators of the championship during 5-10 July".
