Open section: Open to all rated players, but we strongly suggest players rated below 1900 play in lower sections.
Lower sections: Your section is based on your current CFC or FIDE rating. You may upgrade your section if your rating changes before the start date. You are not allowed to downgrade your section (to prevent sandbagging).
Unrated players: First time tournament players should register in the U1600 section. To apply for higher sections, please email us your chess.com or lichess.org username, and type "CO2019" in your profile.
US / International players: May use their national rating (e.g. USCF) if no established FIDE or CFC rating is available. A $16 CFC tournament pass is required.
Absent players are forfeited one hour after round starts.
You must tell the arbiter 24 hours in advance if you plan to withdraw mid-tournament, or your next game will be rated as a forfeit.
