WBGC Worcester Turkey Tournament 2019

WBGC Turkey Tournament 2019

Format and Schedule

The tournament is divided into two flights, the Main and Intermediates. As a guide, those entering the Intermediate flight should normally have a rating of less than 1650, and the Tournament Director reserves the right to suggest players should switch to the Main flight if appropriate. As this is a one-day event, both flights will progress directly to the knockout stages. Matches will start at 12 noon and it is expected that the event will be finished by about 7pm.

Optional side pools will be available for both competitions on the day.

Additionally, there will be a small Swiss format competition for beginners and social players.

Main Turkeys

32 player knockout. Losers in the first round progress automatically to the Consolation knockout, with an optional Last Chance competition for those wishing for further matches.

Intermediate Chicks

32 player knockout. Losers in the first round progress automatically to the Consolation knockout, also with an optional Last Chance competition.

Social Eggs

12 player Swiss format competition for beginners and social players. Lots of friendly matches for all.
