This event is open to all USCF members born before April 28, 1958.
The tournament format is a 5 round swiss, plus a final playoff round. The time control is 40 moves in two hours, plus sudden death in one hour.
Playoff: If there is a tie in points, there will be a one-game “Modified Armageddon” playoff for the tournament and age bracket champions. White gets 120 minutes – Sudden Death. Black gets draw odds.
Players open bid against the other player for black. The player willing to play the black side with the fewest minutes gets black and draw odds.
Game six will not be rated. The rule of playing a player twice will not apply to game 6. If one player has a clear first
