What is Sunday Sunlight?

A series of USCF tournaments only on Sundays:
  • Quick time control: G/10; d3 (ten minutes each side, 3 seconds delay).
  • All players will need to have an up-to-date USCF membership.
  • Games will affect only your quick rating. It does not affect your regular rating.
  • Six rounds swiss system, and all players are in one group.
  • If no quick rating has been established for the player yet, our pairing system may use their regular rating to match them up with opponents.
  • All USCF quick/blitz game rules apply.
  • Seats are limited. Please register early.

  • Your next round pairings should be ready less than 5 minutes after the last game in the round.
  • You can see the current standings in real time, even from anywhere around the world.
