General Information

All games will be CFC and FQE rated. For team formation, it must respect the order of strength. In other words, board 1 > board 2 > board 3 > board 4 in rating comparison. However, we do allow players to switch boards if their rating difference is less than 50 rating points.

Championship Section:

This would be considered as the open section of the tournament. Players of all strength are welcome. Teams wishing to compete for the title of CUCC Champion need to participate in this section.

Reserved Section (U1800):

The average rating of the players in the team should be lower than 1800. Your most active rating of CFC or FQE will be used for this calculation. Unrated players will not be considered in the team’s average rating.
