** About CFC Membership and Quick 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. Long story short, all tournaments with long games (60+ min per player) use your CFC regular rating. Tournaments with shorter games (< 60 min per player) use your CFC quick rating. They are different ratings and do NOT overlap. This tournament uses CFC Quick ratings** Policies and Guidelines:

  • Active CFC membership is required to play. We assist with CFC membership registration along with tournament entry.
  • 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 CFC rating
  • 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.
  • All electronics capable of making noise, communicating, or playing chess must be switched off while playing.
  • In the event of a tie, prize money split evenly among everyone tied. Tiebreak for non-cash prizes decided by:
    • Head-to-head score of tied players
    • Cumulative score of opponents
    • Armageddon Blitz 5|4
  • Decision of the Tournament Director will be final in the event of a conflict.
