“We will follow the same format as the Kiddies tournament which is a 7-Round Swiss System of Standard chess competition, which means one hour timecontrol to finish the game. The top two players on each qualifying date will advance to the grand finals in December,” Yap explained.
The first round will start at 10 a.m. today.
Meanwhile, Yap announced the third qualifying tournament for the Kiddies tournament will be on June 20 and 21.
