Details

Group stage round robin.  Top two teams from each group progress to a single elimination ladder.  One match played per week per team.  Matches are best of 16 at a 2-minute time control for the open section and best of 14 at a 3-minute time control for the u2000 section.

Broadcasting

Many of the top-8 single elimination ladder matches will be streamed from the chesscomevents Twitch channel.  The finals in both sections will probably be streamed on the chess Twitch channel.  Other bughouse Twitch streamers including chuckmoulton will try to stream as many matches as possible from the group stage and the single elimination ladder stage.  The more notice given to scheduled matches, the more likely they will be covered.
