The competition is designed to fast forward player rated between 5k to 1k and to be promoted to shodan. It will be organized once or twice yearly on a non-fixed period basis. This will more accurately represent the player’s current strength and to promote a fairer competition pairing in international event. Approximately 20% of the top players from this competition will be promoted to Shodan.
