This tournament will pay prizes based solely on your final score. All the prizes are guaranteed. If the total pay out in the Open section is less than $1500, all payouts will be raised to bring the total to $1500. The Open section will be FIDE rated.


Advantages over place-based scoring

Less Waiting
Your score determines your prize. Once you finish your last game, you can receive a check.
Less Uncertainty
Your prize does not get lowered if others tie with you. If there are two 5-0 players, both receive the full amount for 5-0.
Less short draws
The total payout is always higher when games are decisive.











Unrated may enter any section, but may not win over $100 in U1100, $200 U1300, $300 U1500, $400 U1700, $500 U1900, or $600 U2100. Balance goes to player(s) with same score or is divided amoung players in next lower score group.
