This is a "No Vacation" tournament!

This is for risk takers, committing to one long tournament for big points rather than eking out a few points at a time in multiple smaller tournaments. With this format, players who reach the final round will have played up to ten games each round for an estimated six rounds.

At the end someone has a chance of taking home more points than in any one tournament, with a similar ratings range, than they have ever done before.

 

Minimum Games Completed: 100 (was 200) 

Maximum Timeout %: 15 (was 10)

Here are examples where three players in a group advance. They are in the rarefied height of thousand point tournaments.

A tournament with larger groups will have less rounds but then more simultaneous games are added to your list.
