** About CFC Membership and Quick/ Regular Ratings

The CFC (Canadian Chess Federation) represents Canada to the world as a member of FIDE, the international chess body. As a CFC member, you have access to all CFC rated events across Canada, and will obtain national CFC chess ratings.

There are two types of CFC ratings: Regular, and Quick. Tournaments/ section with long games (60 min or more per player) use your CFC regular rating. Tournaments/ section with shorter games (less than 60 min per player) use your CFC quick rating. They are different ratings and do NOT overlap.

Policies and Guidelines:

  • Active CFC membership is required to play. We assist with CFC membership registration along with tournament entry. This tournament uses both CFC Quick & Regular ratings depending on the section.
  • You may request a full refund before registration closes. No refunds after that.
  • We reserve the right to move players to the appropriate section based on their grade/ age group.
  • You may request a maximum of two ½ point byes.
  • No byes on Round 6 (requests for a bye on Round 6 will be ignored, or you will receive a 0-point bye).
  • No food or beverages allowed during a live match.
  • Photos are allowed for the first 5 minutes of each round, but please be discrete and respectful to not disturb players.
  • Silence is required in the playing area while games are in progress. Parents assisting their kids/ suggesting moves will lead to IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION OF THE PLAYER.
  • Any player/ parent/ guardian with frequent coughing, sneezing, other visible symptoms of illness may be asked to withdraw from the tournament/ leave the premises.
  • If you have experienced COVID-19 or its symptoms in past 14 days, we request you to voluntarily withdraw from the tournament for health and safety of all our patrons. Face masks are recommended for all.

    • Armageddon Blitz 5|4
  • Decision of the Tournament Director will be final in the event of a conflict. The final standings declared after tournament completion cannot be altered or changed.
