Time control is 90 minutes + 30 seconds per move.

Players will be seeded by their FIDE Rating first, and their National Rating second and paired based on the FIDE Match System format - Knock Out style i.e. 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, 3 vs 14, etc. Players will draw for colors prior to starting their game and each pair will play 2 games against one another (1 as white and 1 as black).

In the event the score is tied, 2 Rapid games of 25 minutes per player will be played to decide the winner. If the score remains tied, an Armageddon style play where White has 5 minutes and Black has 4 minutes of play will be used to break the tie. In the event of a draw, the black player is declared the winner. Players will draw color prior to the start of both tie breaker games.

Players briefing and registration will take place at 9:00am on Friday, 26th February 2010 followed by a short opening ceremony at 9:45am. The round of 16 will commence at 10:00am with the second game to start at 3:00pm.
