IECG Rules and Regulations, version 7.0 (March 1, 2006)


2.3 IECG Cup

The annual IECG Cup is started with preliminary rounds once a year.
Participation is open to all IECG members, regardless of their chess strength.

It consists of 4 stages: preliminary, quarterfinal, semifinal and final.

Except for the Finals, at every stage all games still unfinished after 13 months are adjudicated.

Each preliminary stage is started once a year, with 7, 9 or 11 players groups (depending on participation), single round robin. The first two placed (and all tied) in each preliminary group qualify to the quarterfinal stage.

Quarterfinal groups are 7, 9 or 11 players groups, single round robin. Depending on
the size of the groups, the first two or three of each quarterfinal qualify for the semifinal stage.

Semifinal groups are 7, 9 or 11 player groups, single round robin, where the winner qualifies to the IECG Cup Final A, and the second placed to the IECG Cup Final B.

Both finals (A & B) are 7, 9 or 11 player groups, single round robin.

Administration of the IECG Cup is responsibility of the IECG Cup Director named by the IECG Council.

The Cup winner and the second placed are directly qualified for the next IECG Cup finals.
The winner of the IECG Cup is also qualified for the IECG World Championship.
The winner of an IECG Cup Final B, and all the players in an IECG Cup Final A, except for the first and second finishers (who are qualified for the next IECG Cup final) are directly qualified for the next IECG Cup semifinals.
In principle, any qualification may be used only once.
