Tournament Arc is a chess tournament exclusively for Anime Youtubers. Eight "Anitubers" will compete for a share of the $5,000 prize pool with games being played on Chess.com.

Format

Eight players will form a single-elimination bracket. Each round will consist of two games with players playing each color once. A win is worth 1 point, a draw is worth ½ point, and a loss is worth 0 points. The time control is 10 minutes for the game and a five-second increment.

In the case of a tie after the two 10+ 5 games, a single 3+0 sudden-death tiebreak game will determine a winner. If that first tie-break game ends in a draw, more 3+0 games will follow until there is a winner.
