The Details

Qualifications: Every K-12 student who is a member of the United States Chess Federation (USCF) on the day of the tournament shall be qualified to participate. High schoolers who graduate in 2022 are also eligible to participate.

Registration: To register, please visit: Additional fees may be charged by Eventbrite, in addition to your entry fee, if you register electronically. Such fees are nonrefundable in all cases. Refunds are made to the original payment method or as a credit for future events, the one or the other to be chosen by the registrant. Credits expire two years after issuance.

Schedule: The first round commences at 11:00am (Central Time) and each subsequent round as soon as possible thereafter. Although the tournament is expected to last approximately four hours, the actual duration thereof may vary.

Capacity: The maximum capacity of this tournament is 100. As space is limited, register now before someone else takes your place.

Ratings: This tournament is USCF rated and will affect players' online quick ratings only. Rating qualifications for sections and prizes will be determined according to the player's online quick rating as shown on the April Supplement unless the tournament director assigns a different rating. Players with foreign ratings shall disclose such ratings before the event.

Prizes: Fifty percent of all entry fees received (net of refunds) will be issued as prizes in the form of Amazon gift cards. The organizer will determine the manner in which this amount will be divided. Class prizes may be awarded. If two or more players tie for any prize, the same will be equally divided between them.

Fair-Play: Ensuring that the highest standards of fair play are observed in this tournament is of the utmost importance to the organizer. Players will be monitored on a Zoom call during the duration of the tournament and must keep their camera on for such time. Backgrounds are not allowed. As an additional precaution against cheating, we will not issue any prizes until at least one week since the tournament has passed. If anyone used a chess engine or book while playing in this event, will almost certainly detect such violations and expel the violators from the platform. In such event, we will impose such other sanctions that we, in our sole discretion, deem proper, including, but not limited to, disqualification from accepting any prize and forfeiture of all games. If you would like to discover more about how’s vigorous anti-cheating procedures work, please visit:
