The 2019 SSCC Blitz Championship will consist of the following 3 blitz tournaments, held throughout the year:
Autumn Blitz Tournament: 26th March
Winter Blitz Tournament: 9th July
Spring Blitz Tournament: 8th October
Players will be awarded points for each tournament they participate in, according to a Grand Prix System (1st in category: 10 points, 2nd: 8 points, 3rd: 6 points, 4th: 4 points, 5th: 3 points, 6th and below: 2 points). Once the 3 tournaments are completed, the points will be tallied and the respective SSCC Blitz Championship titles awarded to the leading players in each category.
Just as in 2016, 2017 and 2018, cash prizes will be awarded for performances in this year's individual tournaments, as is the case for most other events held at the club. No Grand Prix cash prizes will be awarded. Thus, players may not need to participate in all 3 tournaments to win a prize.
The entry fee for each tournament will be $10. Fischer time controls will be used for all blitz events in 2019, as are used in ACF and FIDE blitz events. The time controls for the various events can range from 3 minutes initially with 2 seconds increment per move, up to 5 minutes initially with 3 seconds increment per move.
