Format

Round 1: 4 groups of 4 players (1, 8, 9, 16) (2, 7, 10, 15) (3, 6, 9, 14) (4, 5, 12, 13): 3 matches each.

Round 2: All 16 players re-grouped as is done in the FS tournament.
Each group has a number 1, 2, 3, 4 from the 4 different groups of Round 1. (3 more matches)

Round 3: Playoffs.

The top 8 players based on CUMULATIVE record from both rounds advance
to the Playoff round, which is 3 rounds of single elimination.

Schedule:
Tournament starts April 5. (or sooner if players are eager enough!)

Round 1: 8 days (3 matches) -- Deadline: April 13 (Thursday)
Round 2: 8 days (3 matches) -- Deadline: April 21. (Friday)
Playoffs: As soon as they can be played (up to 3 matches),
to finish by the end of the month.

Avante sets with 15 minute timers will be played.

SPECIAL RULES FOR THIS TOURNAMENT
  • All 2-game matches must be played back-to-back at the same table.
    That is because every starting position is different and the two games must be played with the same start.
  • Players should use the "Reseat" button to determine colors randomly for the first game --
    this is because there may be something to learn from the opening moves of the first game,
    to apply to the second. This gives both players an equal chance of any such benefit.
