ICCF Platinum Jubilee World Cup final - last call
Wednesday, October 5, 2022: for qualifiers, GMs holding 5xGM norms and world champions!
The first 10 players of each preliminary section qualify for the Jubilee World Cup final (tie-break applies).
Also, all previous World Correspondence Chess Champions and the holders of ICCF GM title with at least 5 Grandmaster norms can enter (free of charge) directly to the final stage.
No multiple entries.
Registrations for the final
Qualifiers must confirm their participation in the final to the tournament organizer as soon as possible by registering on the ICCF website, but no later than 15 October 2022. Confirmed registrations can be found here.
Most eligible players have already registered.
The final will consist of approximately 100 players (each player will play 14 games). Paring will be made in according to the Silli system. The event will be rated with title norms.
The final will start on 15.11.2022; end date 15.01.2025.
Rate of play
In the final, the same as in the preliminaries, an incremental rate of play applies (30 days per game, plus 3 days every 1 move, reflection time duplication after 20 days; 45 days leave per year, no special leave). Linear conditionals can be entered. The public can see the games live after 10 games are finished in the event; live transmission delayed by 5 moves.
Additional tie-breaking procedure
If a tie persists after the standard tie-breaking procedures (Silli event: Buchholz cut 2, then Buchholz cut 1, then Buchholz, then Buchholz 2nd stage, and then number of wins), then the order is decided by the lower rating (fixed or unfixed) at the end of the tournament. If the tie still remains, the order is determined by the lower rating (fixed or unfixed) in previous ranting lists until broken. If players are still tied after all relevant tie-breaking procedures have been used, the players will be considered equal.
In the final cash prizes of 1 000 EUR, 600 EUR, 300 EUR and 100 EUR will be awarded to the top 4 players. Tie-breaks will not be applied in respect of these cash prizes and instead those players scoring equal points will equally share any prize money due.
Also, in the final occasional medals and certificates will be awarded to the top 3 players (tie-break applies).
