The objective of this tournament is to provide a stimulating and friendly challenge for all players with promotion prospects and the possibility of earning points towards a BCCA Title. It is designed to allow for continuous entry throughout the year.
Players will be split in to three ‘Classes’ with all players starting in Class 1 unless their ICCF Rating is > 2000 in which case they will start in Class 2 or Class 3 if rated >2200 The format will be ‘All Play Trios’ (4 Games per player) with the winner of a Class 1 Trio being awarded 2 BCCA Candidate Master Points (BCM) and promotion to Class 2.
Class 2 Trio winners become eligible to play in Class 3 and are awarded 4 BCM points. The winner of a Class 3 Trio will be awarded 3, much sort after, BCCA Master Points (BM) and be eligible for a Trios Championship Semi-Final.
Players who come second in their respective Trio stay in that Class and the 3rd placed player will return to Class below. This excludes Class 1 and the Championship rounds where all players remain in Class 3
If a player has prepaid rounds available they will be entered in a new Trio including the Championship rounds automatically unless they notify the Tournament Director that they do not wish to play.
Because of the PayPal transaction charges to the club, it is recommended that players purchase 2 or 3 rounds at a time at a cost of £2.00 per round; multiple Trios are permitted in Class 1 only.
Most players purchase 3 rounds initially to cover 2 Class 1’s and a possible Class 2 if they achieve promotion. Every effort has been made to keep costs as low as possible. All Trio’s are played on the ICCF Webserver and ICCF rated.
