  • Two Sections: 1800+ and under1800. Both sections will be FIDE rated.
  • Pairings are based on US Chess Jan 2022 monthly regular supplemental rating. The higher rating between the OTB and the online rating (ONL) may be used for pairing purposes. The Chief TD has discretion to use a player's online or live rating for pairing purposes in extreme cases where fairness will be preserved by doing so.

6. Eligibility

  • Players must have current US Chess Federation membership. The expiration date of their US Chess membership must be later than the last day of the tournament. 
  • Not sure if you have a membership? Need to check the expiration date of your members? Visit: https://new.uschess.org/player-search
  • Become a member or renew your membership: https://new.uschess.org/player-search
     

7. Tournament Rules

  • Standard US Chess rules apply.
  • Forfeit time is 30 minutes without prior notice, 60 minutes if we are notified: A player will be awarded a forfeit win against any opponent who does not show up according to the prescribed rules.

8. FAQ

  • What do the time controls mean?
    Time controls tell you how much time you have for each game.
    G120;d5 means game in 120 minutes (2 hours) with a 5-second delay at each move. This means you get 120 minutes, your opponent gets 120 minutes, and at each move the clock counts down from 5 to 0 before the player's time starts. If a player doesn't use up the whole 5 seconds, that time is lost.
  • How many games/rounds?
    The 7SS before the time control means there are seven rounds or seven games that a player can play in the tournament. The tournaments are never elimination, so win or lose, you can stay in the tournament.
