How are scores calculated?
A win has a base score of 1 point, a draw of 0.5 points, and a loss is worth no points. This is a Swiss tournament, so you will be paired with the opponent based on your previous round's results. If you don't have an opponent for one round (if the number of participants is odd), you will be awarded a point.
How is the winner decided?
The player(s) with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament's set time limit will be announced winner(s).
How does the pairing work?
It is the Swiss pairing system. At the beginning of the tournament, players are paired based on their ratings.
How does it end?
The tournament finished when all rounds are finished.
