INSTRUCTIONS:

1. You must have an account in www.lichess.org. Registration is free and you should do it in advance.

2. Request to join the Caissa Chess Club in Lichess through this link: https://lichess.org/team/caissa-chess-club-hong-kong. Please do this in advance too.

3. Fill the registration form in this page. Once the payment is processed we will send you the tournament password. Then you can join the event here (round 2).

SYSTEM OF PLAYING:

 

Players will be automatically paired based on their rating, score and other parameters. Players must be waiting on the tournament page in between games (click "Go back to tournament" after every game you finish or you won't be paired). Players don't need to play for the 2 hours, they will be allowed to stop and rejoin whenever they want. 

 

TOURNAMENT REGULATIONS

1.    The tournament will be played online, at www.lichess.org platform.


2.    There will be 4 qualifying events, to be played on:

 

  • April 5th (Sunday) 4-6pm

  • April 19th (Sunday) 4-6pm

  • May 3rd (Sunday) 4-6pm

  • May 17th (Sunday) 4-6pm

 

The format of these events will be “Lichess arena”. Players will be paired with anyone close to their ranking as soon as they finish a game. In this way, waiting times are minimized but players might play a different number of games. A won game gives you 2 points, a draw 1 point. 2 extra points are awarded for any game won by a player “on streak”, after winning 2 or more consecutive games. Rate of play will be 10’ + 5’’ / move.

 

3.    The top 12 players of each event will be awarded GP Points. The winner will get 12 points, the runner-up 11 points, the 3rd place gets 10 points and so on until the player in 12th place, who will receive one point.


4.    The following players will qualify for the Finals

 

  • Winner and runner up of each qualifying tournament. If in any event a player who was already qualified makes it into the top 2, their qualifying slot will pass to the 3rd placed player and so on.

  • The 8 non directly qualified players with most GP points.


5.    Finals format:

 

  • The 16 qualified players will be ranked based on their GP points.

  • There will be 2 games matches (1-16, 2-15, 3-14, …), 5’+3’’ per game. In case of tie, a 3rd game will be played, with colours determined by drawing of lots. If this third game is a draw, the higher seed player advances.

  • Players who lose a match won’t play anymore, EXCEPT for the semi-finals, as there will be a 3rd/4th place match.

 

    

​6.    Trophies will be awarded to best 3 players
