Please complete the registration form (at the end of this post) and send it to us now!

Before you proceed to register, please help us complete the following poll on your preferred format of play to aid a better organisation for the tournament. A brief explanation of the different formats is as follows:-

Round-Robin with Knock-out : This is the traditional format for most tournament, where players drawn in groups of 3 or 4 (with consideration of seeding), there after with the top qualifying players advancing into the knock out rounds. This system is similiar to the actual FIFA World Cup system and provides additional excitement of sudden-death competition during the knock-out rounds.

Additional explanation can be found at : “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin_tournament” & “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-elimination_tournament”

SWISS System : This format groups all players together in a single group with sequence decided by drawing of lots. Thereafter, players shall play subsequent players progressively (eg: #1 vs #2, #3 vs #4, and so on). a minimum of 5 rounds of games will be played. Each player shall not meet the same player twice. If this happens, he/she shall be scheduled to play the next player in line whom he/she have yet to play with. At the end of the 5 rounds (or more if time permits), the top 2 placed players will enter a FINAL play-off for the eventual winner, and the 3rd & 4th placed player shall enter the 3rd/4th place play off to determine the next 2 positions. This system provides all players with an equal number of games and prevents repeated match-ups.

Additional explanation of the SWISS sytem can be found at : “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss-system_tournament”.
