Perfect Score Playoffs

In the event we have multiple perfect scores in any section, the first place winner of that section will be determine in 5-minute playoff games. This is ONLY for 5-0 scores.

If there are 3 perfect scores, the players will play a round robin. The winner of the round robin will be first, and 2nd and 3rd will be determined by the normal tournament tie break process.

If the players are still tied after the playoff, the tournament tie breaks will be used to determine the winner.

The rules for the 5-minute playoff game will follow standard USCF rules. Touch move, illegal moves lose, and if you determine a move after your opponent plays an illegal move, the determined moves stands and the opponent plays on. This will be explained before the playoff.

Which rating supplement will be used?
We will use the May rating supplement, which will be available April 20th.

What will happen if my child is in the wrong section?
In the event that entrants are in sections they are not eligible for, they will be moved to the lowest rated section they ARE eligible for.

Why was my child moved to a more difficult section?
We have moved several entrants from sections they are not eligible for to the easiest alternative section based on their age and rating. As an example, a child who is rated higher than 600 is not eligible for a U600 or U400 section, regardless of how many tournaments he or she has played in or how old they are.

We cannot make exceptions for just being just a few points over the top rating for a section.
