Bye Policy



Since byes do not count toward money, any number of byes in any round

are allowed.



20% of prize fund goes to DCC Treasury towards the 2020 Denver Open.


Last opportunity to change rating before February supplement to qualify for the 2020 Colorado Closed.


Brian Wall, Akshat Jain, and Sullivan McConnell are competing for the final spot in the 2020 Colorado Closed. Gunnar Andersen and Griffin McConnell have also committed to play.


Each player has the option to play one, two, or three boards per round.

Every entrant registers as himself but can also register up to two

"clones", with a maximum of three entries. No one plays themselves.


Clones play simultaneously, so each round a player with two clones

will get three pairings. All games are rated as normal.


Normal score keeping rules apply except players with clones may stop

keeping score when under 10 minutes if they have multiple games going

on. A clone may get help from another person to continue keeping score.


Join the DCC on or before the day of the tournament to receive

discounted entry fees.
