Rate of play
In the A to C groups and U25-group the rate of play is 1,5 hours plus an increment of 30 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match move.
In the D- and E-group, the rate of play is 40 minutes plus an increment of 30 seconds for each seperate move from the beginning of the match.
In the F-, G- and H- group, the rate of play will be 25 minutes plus an increment of 10 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match. This goes for both the F-, G- and H- tournament as well as the joint FGH-tournament.
The playing schedule for the A to C groups is unchanged from previous years. These groups each play 9 rounds from August 3rd to August 8th.
The playing schedule for the U25-group will mostly follow the A to C groups' schedule. Two morning rounds (to be decided which) will be left out for the U25-group
The D- and E-group will be playing 13 rounds.
For the F-, G- and H- group, the tournament is split into two parts:
- a nine round tournament from Monday 3th to Wednesday 5th where all participants play in their own age group (F-, G- and H-group). If less than 20 participants enrol in either the G- or H-group, we'll probably combine both groups.
- another nine round tournament from Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th where all participants play in one joint FGH-group. If more than 70 participants enrol, we'll probably split this group in two;
Participants are free to participate in one of these tournaments, or both. Also, you may decide up to August 6th to enrol for the second tournament!
The exact schedules will be published at a later date.
There is a cash price and a trophy for the best three in each tournament, as you can see in the schedule below. In addition, all participants in the D-, E-, F-, G- en H-group will get a nice little prize no matter how they perform.
