The Filipino Chess Players League brings you yet another chess tournament this October... please read below....quick:

FCPL October Active Chess King Tournament 2008

Schedule: Friday, (3 October) and Friday, (10 October) / Open to all nationalities

Venue: Reef Mall
Time: Game starts at 3:00 p.m. (please come early if you intend to register on the tournament venue on 3 October)

The tournament will be a combination of Swiss system and match play format as explained below:

A five-round Swiss system elimination on October 3 will determine the four qualifiers to play for the playoffs. The playoffs qualifiers will battle it out in two-game matches that will be held on October 10 for the right to the title as FCPL October Active Chess King. The non-qualifiers will continue to play in the nine-round Challenger Division, with their scores in the previous five rounds being carried over. The final four rounds of the Challenger Division will be played on October 10.

The semifinals pit the No.1 qualifier vs. No.4 and No.2 vs. No.3. The winning semifinalists will advance to the finals and the losers will play for third. All matches will be played in a two-game series with the Armageddon system (details of which will be explained further during the tournament) serving as the tiebreaker.

Challenger Division
- any player may choose to take a bye for up to two times in any of the first three rounds (on the first day of the tournament (on October 3))
- any player is allowed to take a bye only in the sixth round (on the second day of the tournament (October 10))
- any player requesting a bye must inform the Arbiter before the pairings are posted, otherwise such request will no longer be entertained

- a bye is worth half a point
