Can still use a few more Open players but the other sections are nearing their natural maximums. Capacity for the overall tournament is 36. (TD reserves the possibility of shifting to a fourth section or any other configuration to assure good competition for the broadest array).
Where possible we attempt to honor several types of requests:
- First Round Byes -- 1/2 point will be awarded
- Requests to play up sections -- offered in order of the player's pre-event rating
- Avoidance of pairing against siblings or parents -- always honored
- Avoidance of pairing against club members -- honored in early rounds but this rule is turned off in later rounds if necessary for deciding prizes
