:  Players will be divided into groups of 6, based on USCF ratings as of January 2017.  Each division will play a round robin format.  
The only exception would be the lowest group which may consist of a number of players different than 6, to which, we would use a Swiss pairing format.


Trophies: Top 2 players in each group will receive a trophy.  If there is a tie for a trophy then the tiebreaker is based off the head to head result.  Any remaining ties will be broken by a 3 minute playoff game. 


At least $750 of scholarship money will be awarded.  More may be provided pending on sponsorship funding of the event.


Top USCF Group:  First $250, Second $150 (tie splits prize)

Next USCF Group: First $150, Second $100 

Next USCF Group: First $100

All other groups will receive trophies only.
