    MCC Grand Final Friday Skittles 2017

    GRAND FINAL FRIDAY SKITTLES

    ‘How many wickets can YOU take?’

    When: 2pm - 6pm, Friday 29 September 2017 (Grand Final Friday Public Holiday)

    Where: Melbourne Chess Club, 66 Leicester St, Fitzroy 3065

    Entry fee: $10 adult member, $7 junior member, $20 adult non-member, $15 junior non-member (GMs and member IMs and FMs free)

    Scoring: Players begin with a starting number of points based on ACF rating:

    Over 2200: 2 points;
    2000-2200: 2.5 points;
    1800-2000: 3 points;
    1600-1800: 3.5 points;
    1400-1600: 4 points;
    1200-1400: 4.5 points;
    0-1200: 5 points.

    After losing all of your points, you are knocked out (“skittled”), for example if you have 1.5 points, you can afford one loss, but if you have a loss followed by a draw, you are out!

    Format: The event will be run as a Swiss until remaining players have to start playing each other more than once. Players will not play the same player more than once until necessary.

    Time control: Blitz – 3 minutes plus 2 seconds increment.

    Prizes: About 80% of the collected entry fee goes back into the prizes.

    Bonus Prize: The person who skittles the previous (1) Skittles Champion (Hans Gao) or (2) if not present, the highest seed, will receive a packet of Skittles sweets.

    What if I'm skittled early? Start a friendly blitz game with others who have been skittled!

    Arbiter: FM Grant Szuveges

    Reminder - Skittles starts 2 pm tomorrow

    Just a reminder that the MCC Grand Final Skittles starts at MCC at 2 pm tomorrow.

    With the Grand Final Parade scheduled to end at around 1 pm tomorrow and a large number of spectators in attendance, please be aware that traffic flows out of the Melbourne CBD (particularly around Parliament) will be much restricted, so please bear this mind when coming to MCC tomorrow.
