Slow Starter Prize (Best score in final 5 rounds by a non prizewinner) – $200

The Reserves prize money is based on 100 players in the Reserves. MCC is working toward guaranteeing these prizes.

The rating divisions are based on ACF ratings. You must have an ACF rating to be eligible for a rating prize. As directed by the ACF for a player to win an unrated prize they need to not be rated on any rating list.

Rating prize categories may be altered dependent on the numbers of players and their rating distribution.

A rated player is eligible for any higher rating group prizes, though a player may only win one prize.

Unrated players are not eligible for a Rating prize, they are however eligible for the main prizes.

There must be at least three unrated players for the Unrated prize to be awarded.

Regardless of what is written here any disputes will be referred to the ACF for a decision.
