As part this process we had a meeting this morning to thrash out some of the administrative issues. The usual issues of minimum number of team members (3), how late can a team arrive (before 2nd round), and who will get the bye were discussed. There were a couple of other topics which are probably important.
- Unrated players will be rated 1000 (the FIDE floor), for the purpose of seeding purposes
- Performance ratings (for board prizes) will not use the 400 point rule, and again unrateds will count as 1000
- The bye is 1 match point (and 2 game points)
- Forfeits are 2 match points (and 4 game points)
