Previously, the matches in the CGC consisted of four games, but as the stakes increase, so does the match length. With eight 15+2 games instead of four, there are more chances for comebacks and drama.

FIDE rated

In 2021, FIDE approved ratings for “hybrid” events played on a network in a physical venue with on-site referees, such as the CGC. Because of this, all games count towards the official FIDE ratings of the players in rapid chess, adding a little extra stake to the event.
