7. Tournament Rules

  • Standard US Chess rules apply.
  • Forfeit time is 60 minutes: if player is not present at the board by 7:30pm, the opponent will be awarded a forfeit win.

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 (aka 2 hours) with a 5-second delay on 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, the remainder of that time is lost.

     
  • How many games/rounds?
    The 7SS before the time control means
    it is a Swiss System tournament with 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.
