A win is one point to the winner, a draw is half a point to each player, a loss is 0 points to the loser. Non elimination, and each game is with a different opponent. There will be 7 total rounds. At the end of the rounds, points earned will determine winners. In the event of a tie, the two players will play each other in a series of games with increasingly faster time controls beginning with 3+2 until one player has more points.

Playing an illegal move forfeits the game unless otherwise granted a take-back by your opponent. However, please note that they are not obligated to give you one.

Chess clock is to be hit with the hand you use to move your pieces. Castling is to be done with one hand, touching the king first.

Touch move / clock move is agreed upon by you and your opponent.

In the event of an illegal move, king capturing is permitted (do not be surprised if someone takes your king).
