The event will be 12 round open competition, which will be paired
using a Swiss system. Players may request a ½ point bye in
any round. However, byes in the final round must be booked before
the tournament starts and the request cannot be withdrawn after that
time. All games will be FIDE Rated with results included in the
English Chess Federation Grand Prix. Ratings will be taken from the latest
records that we hold at the venue on the day of each event.
TIMES & DEFAULT
Round 1 starts at approximately 7-30pm. Default time will be immediately after the start of each round. All
players play in all rounds (except where there is a bye - no player can get more
than 1 bye). It is NOT
a knockout! We do not set
round times but will start the next round as soon as reasonably possible
after the previous one.
3 minutes for all moves plus 2
seconds added Fischer timings from move 1.
