  • On-site registration is from 8:30 am – 9:00 am the day of the tournament
  • This is a USCF-rated tournament, so you must be a member of the US Chess Federation to participate in this tournament. You may pay your USCF membership dues online prior to the tournament or you can pay on-site. You can visit http://uschess.org to begin or renew your USCF membership.


  • 3 rounds Single Round Robin Quad
  • Groups of 4 players (based on rating) play each other
  • If the number of players is not a factor of 4, then some groups may be larger than four players (i.e. if we have 17 players, then there will be three groups of 4 and one group of 5) and that/those group(s) will play a 3-round Swiss System.


  • G/90+5 second add/delay
  • Delay clocks are preferred (Fischer add is preferred over Bronstein delay). This takes precedence over Blacks choice of clock. If Black does not have a delay clock and White does, then it is preferred that White’s delay clock be used.
  • If a delay clock is NOT available, then game is played at G/90
  • The tournament director is not responsible for knowing how to set your clock. You should be VERY familiar with your own clock! Have your clock set and ready prior to the start of each round.


  • 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
  • 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
  • 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
