Format: Players are divided into 4 player sections (quads) by NWSRS rating; the last section may end up with 4-7 players. In that case, we will use Swiss pairing (for that section only).
Time Control: 25/5 for time delay clocks. We will provide chess boards, pieces, and clocks for the tournament. But please bring your clock, if you have one.
Notation: Players are encouraged to notate; players rated over 1000 are required to notate.
Prizes: First place trophy, second place medal in each section.
All proceeds from the tournaments (minus operating expenses for trophies, medals, etc) will go to the following nonprofit organizations:
• CORD USA
• Boy Scouts of America (until September 2019)
• Oregon Scholastic Chess Federation (starting October 2019)
Tiebreakers: Tied players play a two 5 minute blitz games (for each player, one game with black pieces and one game with white pieces). If they are still tied, then the players play an Armageddon Blitz game (White has 6 mins and must win the game and black has 4 mins and must not lose the game. A draw will make Black the winner of the Tiebreaker) No delay/increment.
