 Under Swiss pairing rules for an odd number of players, one player will receive a "forced bye", with a value of 1 point.

 All other byes will normally be 0-point byes (the Arbiter/Organizer team may consider genuinely exceptional situations).

CYCC (computerized) Tiebreaks

These are the 2016 CYCC (computerized) tiebreaks.
They are based upon tiebreaks previously announced for the 2015 World Youth & Cadets Chess Championships.
1) the games between the tied players (applies only if all tied players have played each other)
2) Buchholz Cut 1
3) Buchholz
4) the greater number of games with Black (unplayed games count as played with white)
5) the greater number of wins
6) the younger birthdate
7) coin flip (administered by Chief Arbiter)

Ratings Regulations:

All of the ratings delineated below were captured as of 3rd July 2016.

That date will serve as the baseline date for the ratings in this event.


1)      If a player has a CFC Regular rating, then that will be used.

2)      If a Quebec player has a higher FQE Lente rating, than that will be used instead.

3)      If a player in the U18 or U16 section has a FIDE Standard rating higher than both:

          #1 (all players) and #2 (only Quebec players), then that will be used instead.

4)      If a player still has no rating after points #1-#2-#3 above,

          then repeat those steps, but this time for CFC Active - FQE Semi-Rapide - FIDE Rapid, respectively.

5)      If a player still has no rating, then UNR (unrated) will be used.

6)      The Arbiter/Organizer team reserves the right to adjust extreme ratings if/as appropriate.


You can play up at CYCC 2016. You need to apply to the CFC youth coordinator and the tournament organizers/CFC president to play up. You cannot simply register for a section under the radar without requesting to play up. You cannot play up into a section where there are no competitors or very few competitors. If you do play up and qualify, that is the section where you will play at WYCC or WCCC. Where someone plays up and sections are combined so that you are playing in a combined section against your own age group that is the age group which you will be deemed to be competing in.
