Game Format

8 team Swiss tournament, three rounds. Scoring 2-1-0.

Rapid chess: 20 minutes for all moves + 5 seconds increment per move.

The pro makes the first move, no conferring.

 

Time Outs. Two one-minute time outs will be permitted per game. The team will need to signal to the arbiter that you wish to confer and time outs can only be called when it’s your move. Either player can call a time out. The clocks will be stopped during your time out. After two time outs – no further consultation is permitted. The team that calls the time out remains at the board the other team leaves.

 

In the event of a tie after three rounds a Blitz game between the amateurs will determine the winner of the competition. If the play-off game is a draw then the GM and amateurs from opposing teams will play each other and the first to checkmate wins!
