Whether you consider yourself a beginner or intermediate player, this tournament format will place 2020-21 online club players from the fall, winter, & spring into experience level pools based on their performance during club activities.

Each pool needs a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 64 players. Rounds, Recognitions and Pools are based on the registration numbers for each tournament. Each competition will have 4-6 rounds in a SWISS or Round Robin format.
In addition to Standard Chess 10+3, there will also be recognitions for online chess variations as time permits such as; (Chess 960/Anti-Chess/CrazyHouse/Horde@5+0), (Racing Kings/King of the Hill/Three Check@3+0) & (Atomic, Bullet, & Ultra Bullet 1-¼+0).
Players must have participated in one of the above online clubs to participate in these competitions.
**With the consideration of time constraints, some chess variant competitions may overlap and participants may not be able to compete in all the variants because they will occur at the same time. We will start the tournament with standard chess and then start the variants. You do not have to play in all the individual competitions.**
