For GP scoring, a competitor gains three points each Sunday they attend. If a lower rated player defeats a higher rated player, they will get four points. If a higher rated player defeats a lower rated player, they will get one point. Where the rating difference is more than 250, the lower rated player who defeats a higher player will gain another extra point.
In the event of a draw a higher rated player drawing with a lower rated player will get half a point. If a lower rated player draws with a higher rated player they will get two points.
QJ ratings will be used for competitors. If a competitor has no QJ rating, the DOP will allocate a rating.
Playing fee is $10 each Sunday. Players attending a Sunday Tournament for the first time do not have to pay the $10 playing fee.
