CHESS AMATEURS EVENTS 2018. REGULATIONS

It remains less than a day before the final confirmation of the venue and dates of the first Chess Amateurs Events-2018. It's time to say a few words about the regulations, especially since it will not change during the season.
   Warning of possible questions, we will make a reservation about the criteria that were at the forefront. Firstly, we proceeded from the fact that we will have amateurs who are not so easy to get out of work for longer than a week, and therefore the tournaments should be as compact as possible. Secondly, they come to us not to stick at the board, but to have fun - therefore, all parties must start early enough so that each player can decide what to do in the second half of the day. Thirdly, every day should be filled with events: side tournaments of all stripes and a rich cultural program. And fourthly, we considered it especially important to raise the level of admission to the limit, while maintaining the previous price of the tournament package.

So, the main conditions for holding amateur tournaments:
     — 9 rounds in 7 days, paired tours - 2/3 and 5/6
     — the beginning of tours - at 10:00 (paired - at 15:30)
     — control 90 minutes per lot + 30 seconds. on the course
     — you can skip one round (draw - no game)
     — on the days of unpaired tours, a blitz tournament at 4:00 pm
     — tournaments for any kind of chess - every day

Terms of participation for chess players with a rating lower than 2325 (holders of the title "male grandmaster" in the tournament are not allowed):
     — contribution - 30,000 in the hotel 4****, "all inclusive"
     — prize fund 1,850,000 (1st prize - 300,000)
     — 5 categories of additional prizes: boys, veterans, women, players with a rating below 2100 and 1900 (you can get more than one prize)
     — prizes are divided "according to Hort"; Total prizes - 30

   With an increase in the number of participants for every 50 players (starting from 200), the prize fund is increased by 250,000 (the first prize is 100,000). In addition, the total number of prizes increases - every time by 10.

There are additional options for participants:
     — 10% discount for attracting each "friend"
     — help of the mentor-grandmaster (for% of the prize)

   In parallel with the adult tournament, a children's tournament is organized in 7 rounds. The main points: the contribution from the participants is 5,000, the total prize fund is 300,000 (the first prize is 50,000).

   We are open to your comments and suggestions ...
