A new building built by Johns Hopkins with upper level student housing, retail, and meeting space. The tournament will be held in the 3rd floor banquet hall. There is free Wi Fi, and a Barnes and Noble and Starbucks on the ground floor.


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, extra money will be added to the pay out of the top score group 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.
