Tournament Information


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this tournament will be held online rather than in person as originally planned.

• Since this event has been moved to online, it will no longer be USCF-rated. Players will be competing for online rating points.

• The tournament will begin at 2 pm Eastern Daylight Time (1 pm CT, 12/noon MDT, or 11 am PDT). Players are encouraged to join the tournament a few minutes early.

• There will be four sections: K-3, K-5, K-8, and K-12.

Trophies will be mailed to the winners of each section.

• 10 DMV Grand Prix points will be awarded for participation. 1 Grand Prix point will be awarded for each victory.

• Arena style pairings will be used. This means participants should be able to get a game very quickly after their previous game finishes. There is no exact pre-determined number of rounds (players get to play as many games as possible). The tournament will last for three hours. Players can take breaks or withdraw from the event at any time. The time control will be game in 25 minutes with a 5-second increment.

• Online computer analysis of all games will be possible immediately after the tournament!

• Entry fee: $15 by Friday 4/17/2020, $20 until Saturday 4/18/2020

• After you register, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join the tournament online.
