2 sections with MODIFIED McMahon-style pairing system:

1000+ section, Under 1000 section.

This MODIFIED McMahon-style pairing system will apply a half-point (for pairing purposes only) for every full 100 points of each player's rating beyond the section minimum.  For example, in the 1000+ section, a player rated in the 1900s would receive nine half-points (4.5) to start; a player rated in the 1600s would receive six half-points (3.0) to start.  In the Under 1000 section, a player rated in the 800s would receive 8 points (8.0) to start because the U1000 section involves double rounds.

REGISTER A WEEK OR MORE IN ADVANCE TO RECEIVE AN EXTRA HALF-POINT (for pairing purposes only).
