We run a Swiss format tournament. 4 rounds of 5 point matches. (If there’s an odd number of players there will be a bye which counts as a win on the evening, not on the FIBS ladder.)

The evening’s purse will be paid to the outright winner of 4 matches. If there is no outright winner the purse will Jackpot to the next week etc. (Any residue at the end of the year will be added to the EoY purse. (See below)

Membership (not mandatory) will cost $30. All proceeds, less running costs, to be returned at the end of the year in cash and/or trophies to the club’s champion (50%), RU (25%), 3rd (15%) and 4th (10%) on the FIBS ladder.
