MCC CFC Online Rapid #9

MCC* CFC** Rapid Online (15|10) Tournament

Cash: 1st, 2nd
Cash or Books: Most Improved & Top Under 1600
If more than one section prizes will be adjusted as per usual protocols
All entry fees minus rating fees will be returned as prizes

Fair Play:
Prizes will be held for at least 4 hours after the completion of the tournament, in case of a claim of fair-play violation (use of outside help). In order to make a claim, you go to a player's profile and hit report. You will be asked to complete a written report in case human intervention is required. Immediately afterward you have to contact me with a copy of the report. The organizer will generally accept the decision of the site, but reserves the right to form a Committee (a small group of top players) for a final decision. In the case of a violation, one or more games of the violator will be be scrubbed, and they will be ineligble for any prizes. Further sanctions such as Suspension by the Club or National Federation are also likely to be imposed

5 Round swiss
Depending on the number of players signed up by the end of pre-registration, the event could be broken into 2 sections (at the 1500-1600 mark)
Round 1 starts at 10am (9am EDT), and subsequent rounds begin as soon as all games are finished: 10:45am, 11:30am, 12:15pm, 1:00pm (all times approx)
Time control: 15|10 = G/15, with a 10 sec increment
If there are at least 12 players 1) 1600+ and 2) below 1600, by the day following pre-registration deadline - the tournament will be broken into two parts. Players Under 1600 wanting to play in the Open group will have to pay an additional $5 (effectively becoming pro players).
