Handicap trophy

The player with the highest "Handicap Total" wins the Handicap Trophy.

The "Handicap Total" is obtained by adding the Handicap (column one above) to the player's points gained in the Flood Cup. 

Handicaps are calculated at: [(1477 minus rating) divided by 100]. 

To avoid statistical distortions, James Hiller has 300 points added to his actual rating for handicap purposes only.


 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

·        Games will be played on (or before) the night scheduled for each round.

·        Clocks will start at or before 8.00 p.m. on the night (unless there is prior arrangement)

·        If you are unable to attend on the scheduled night for play you must advise your opponent before the scheduled date and make a mutually alternative arrangement.  The DOP also needs to be advised !!

·        Failure to play your game on the scheduled night (unless arrangements have been made) will result in you forfeiting your game.

·        If you have no other scheduled game on a Friday night it is possible to play a game from a future round in advance if the draw has been made, and your opponent agrees to this.

 

Tie-Breaks

If two or more players end up equal first on points after 9 rounds, then a play-off match (or series of matches if there are 3 or more tied players) will occur.

Other places will be decided by points, then Neustadtl Score (i.e. the sum of a player's defeated opponent's scores plus half the sum of the scores of the opponents who drew with the player), as represented in the Swiss Perfect pairing program.

Digital Game Timers (DGTs) will be used for all games.

·        Step 1: Use setting 23 “Fischer Rapid”, and press OK.

·        Step 2: Enter 1:20, then 00 for the seconds. Press OK.

·        Step 3: Repeat step 2 for the other face.

·        Step 4: Enter the increment 1:00 and press OK. Repeat for the other face.

·        Press Start/Stop when you are ready to commence the game.
