2020 FIDE Online Olympiad - Finals Weekend

 The final weekend of the 2020 FIDE Online Olympiad begins tomorrow (Thursday). The first day will see the teams that finished 2nd and 3rd in their pools play, to decide who meets the pool winners in the quarter finals. Each match consists of 2 rounds over 6 boards, so that each team has an even number of white and blacks. For a team to progress they need to either win both matches, or win one and draw the other. This follows on from the main event, where match points (MP) was the first scoring method. If the match score is tied, then a single game playoff will decide the winner. Before the playoff 1 category will be chosen randomly (Open, Women, Junior Open, or Junior Female), and each team will nominate a player from that category. As the category for the playoff isn't known in advance, teams with strength across all categories are favoured.

Friday night (Canberra time) will see the quarter finals, with semi-finals on Saturday, and the Final on Sunday.
