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.
