The winning school is determined by adding the 4 highest scorers from each school. This means that your school can enter any number of players, and there is no need to rank them by ability, or assign teams.
This tournament is a 7-round ‘Swiss’ competition. This means that all players play 7 games and no-one is ‘knocked out’ of the tournament.

Chess clocks will be used in this event. There will be a short demonstration on the use of chess clocks before the start of the tournament.
The time limit is 15 minutes per player per game.

Prizes: 

First placed school will receive $250 worth of equipment from Canberra Academy of Chess.
