Win two prizes (or even three)!
Think up a catchy name for your team.
This might be the most fun tournament you’ll ever play in, so don’t miss it!

This is a 4 round tournament at a time control of G/90;d5 paired by match point score (Two wins or a win and a draw is a match win, two draws or a win and a loss is a drawn match).

You need a partner and your ratings must average less than 2000 on the April 2020 rating list.  If you can’t find a partner, we can help you find one here.  No consultation is allowed on draw offers, but teams will be seated on the same side of the table with the clocks facing inward, so you can assess your partner’s position and time situation without talking to each other.

Prizes: (based on 10 paid teams.  All prizes raised or lowered according to the number of paid teams)
1st Place Team: $100
2nd Place Team: $50
Top U1700 Team: $60
Top Scorer on Board 1: $60
Top Scorer on Board 2: $60
