  • All games start at the same time.
  • There’s no talking / commenting while games are in progress.
  • If a player has any question / issue, they should pause their chess clock & ask the arbiter for assistance.
  • Every game counts to the final result .. the team with the most “game” points will be the winners.
  • Every game won earns 1 point for the winners team.  It is possible to score a maximum of 6 points for each round of the competition.
  • If there are an odd number of teams, then a team that is given a “bye” will be awarded 4 pts for this match.
  • If teams are on the same points at the end of the event, there will be a blitz play-off.  If still a tie we will eliminate the result of the bottom board until there is a decisive result.
  • Loosing / winning on time.  When a players clock goes to zero they will loose the game.  Except when their opponent does not have mating material.
  • Good luck !
