2014 Summer Swiss II and Rated Beginners Open, Saturday & Sunday, August 30-31
(NEW FORMAT, SEE BELOW)
We had to move back to Saturday & Sunday because of concerns about us attending late on Friday night. We are expanding to a 4 round format. This will have the following benefits:
One extra game with just a $5 increase in entry fee in the Swiss ($25 now) The beginner section will have the extra game with no increase in entry fee.
Prizes are also being raised: $120 1st place (up from $100) $60 Under 1600 (up from $50) Still based on 12 entries.
With the extra round it is far less likely to have 2 perfect scores split the top prize. We should be able to get a single 4-0 winner, if anyone can manage a perfect score.
You can still take half point byes. Up to two are okay. (Commit before tournament)
Here are the details. Let me know if you have any questions.
