A trophy for first place, and a medal for second place in each quad.
Our Friday Night Quads have become a major element of the competitive chess landscape in metropolitan Portland. While most of the players are kids, adults are welcome and some do play. Players are ranked by their OSCF rating and grouped into four player sections. (If a player does not have an OSCF rating, their first quad will generate one for them.) We have a trophy for first place and a medal for second player in each quad. The entry fee is $20. The quads are qualifiers for the 2016 OSCF Championships in Seaside. Time Control: G25/5 for time delay clocks; G/30 for analog and non-delay digital clocks. Please bring your clock, if you have one. Tiebreakers: Ties will be broken with a two game blitz (5 minute) match; if the players are still tied, the tie will be broken with one game of Armageddon Blitz (White gets 6 minutes, Black gets 4 minutes and draw odds.) Ties involving more than two players will be also be broken with blitz games, the format to be determined at the TD’s discretion.
