Prizes

Prizes will be awarded to winners of the Semi-final Sections (such prizes will be in the form of books or other chess material or vouchers, each to the value of approximately 25 EUR, with tie-breaks to be applied if necessary to determine section winners). When all sections finish play TO will sent list of winners to ICCF Finance director who then will arrange prizes distribution.

In the Final medals and certificates will be awarded to the top 3 players (if necessary tie-breaks will be applied to determine the top 3 places). Also 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.

Qualifications

Only semi-final section winner (ties to be decided by points evaluation) will qualify for a 13-15 player World Cup final.

List of reserve (sharing 1st or 2nd place)

Should there be any non starters or unexpected withdrawals, the semi-final sections might be completed by players from a prioritized list of reserve (those sharing 1st or 2nd place) – see below. The drawing of lots will decide the priority, if still necessary. Some of these players might be contacted (if applicable) by TO Mariusz Wojnar via e-mail who will be offered any vacancies which arise.

List of reserve will be employed until October 2017 (more or less).
