Refund Policies and Prize Earnings
The higher rating between the FIDE Standard Rating and (USCF or National) -100 Standard will be used for defining the prize the player earned on a section and if the player belongs to a section.
If the player doesn't have any standard rating their higher FIDE Blitz or (USCF or National) -100 Blitz will be used, then FIDE Rapid or (USCF or National) Rapid - 100 will be used to determine prizes within sections.
If a player is eligible for two prizes between the sections, only the higher prize will be awarded.
If a player doesn't have a FIDE rating, they will still be eligible to receive the section prizes following this formula. (National Rating (USCF or Other) -100 = Fide rating).
If a player doesn't have FIDE or (National Rating (USCF or Other)) regular rating then their highest between their blitz or rapid rating will be used. If a player doesn't have a rating at all then the player will be eligible for all brackets (Except the women if the player is man).
A player is eligible for any prize bracket that's higher than his/her rating. The player will be automatically moved to the bracket with the highest prize earned. If a player earns the same amount of money on two or more brackets, then the player will be moved to the higher bracket for prize earnings.
Tiebreaks are decided by the standings provided by lichess.
A Refund request will not be accepted once the tournament starts, unless the tournament is canceled by the organizer or the site (lichess).
Any refund will reflect the PayPal/Credit Card Fees incurred.
If a player earns a prize, the player is responsible to cover the cost of all transfer fees. Payment to players within the USA will be given in full as there are no transfer fees.
