Each Season is 6 weeks long with 3 games played each week -
All games will be played on lichess.org - a free, open source chess platform.
Pairings will be posted to this website and you will be linked directly to your game with one click!
The "time control" is 10 minutes with a 2-second increment (bonus) per move.
This is a blended "individual/team" competition, not team vs team.
Entire teams will not be paired against each other in a board vs. board format – this will be a large tournament where players may play against anyone else in the tournament.
Minimum players per team: 4
The standard team entry fee includes 15 spots on a team.
Companies may open up an additional 7 spots on the team (total 22) for an additional half entry fee, or 15 spots (total 30) for an additional entry fee.
There is an absolute maximum of 30 players per team.
Companies may enroll multiple teams (Company A, Company B) if there are more than 30 players interested.
Team Scores are calculated by combining the top 4 scorers from the same company.
Players who show up late may have their clock started at the set round times (8:00pm, 8:30pm, 9:00pm Eastern) or may be forfeited.
Players who forfeit a game or fail to withdraw by 7:45pm will not receive any points for that week and will be removed from the rest of the night's game unless they inform us that they will play subsequent games.
Players from the same team (company) will not be paired against each other.
Similarly ranked players will be paired against each other based on ratings and standings.
