Rules & Regulations:
Admission: Open for all & Free of charge
Date & Time: Friday 17th April at: 4:00 PM

Time Control: 3min only for each side.
Tournament Duration: 80 min
Score Calculation: A win has a base score of 2 points, a draw 1 point, and a loss is worth no points. Drawing
the game within the first 10 moves will earn neither player any points. If you win two games consecutively you
will start a double point streak, represented by a flame icon. The following games will continue to be worth
double points until you fail to win a game. That is, a win will be worth 4 points, a draw 2 points, and a loss will
still not award any points.
How is the winner decided?
The player(s) with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament’s set time limit will be announced
winner(s). When two or more players have the same number of points, the tournament performance is the tie
break. Results and winners names will be published after the final report.
How does the pairing work?
At the beginning of the tournament, players are paired based on their rating. As soon as you finish a game,
return to the tournament lobby: you will then be paired with a player close to your ranking. This ensures
minimum wait time, however you may not face all other players in the tournament. Play fast and return to the
lobby to play more games and win more points.
