Karpov Chess School Invitational Team Championships

Karpov School of Chess Team Invitational Championship

Feb. 18, 2017

Team vs. Team competition 

  • Each team consists of four players using the higher of USCF and KSCA ratings.
    • The highest rated player of the team plays Board 1, 2nd highest plays Board 2, 3rd highest plays Board 3, and the 4th player plays Board 4.
    • Each player stays at that board for each round.
  • Teams from the same school district will be protected as much as possible.
  • Schools with greater numbers may split into multiple teams. Such as PVJH-A, PVJH-B, and so on.
  • Each round your team will play a different team using the “team rating” and Swiss format.
    • If a school cannot field a full team, students from a lower grade level school in the district may “play up”. (For example, if Concordia High School only had two players, they could be joined by 2 players from Concordia Middle School.
    •  However, teams cannot be formed by pulling the best players from schools at the same level or from different school districts. (For example, Brooks and PV in USD259 are both middle schools so they may not “join” forces. St. Francis of Assisi-Wichita could not pull players from Christ the King-Topeka)
    • “Borrowed” players from the lower school must play together on the same team. (For example if McPherson High School had 6 players and “borrowed” 2 middle school players. McPherson team A would be 4 high school players and team B would be 2 high school and 2 middle school players.)
    • Home school players living within the same public school district can form a team, but they cannot have someone from a “regular school team” join them. (For example, 3 home schoolers that live within USD 259 could not join with a home schooler from Goddard or a student from The Independent School.)
    • Out of State teams members must live within the same school district and use their USCF or local state rating. These should be included in registration.


  • The team “rating” will be formed by the average of the four players’ ratings.
    • Unrated players will not be counted in the team average.
  • Teams will be paired by the “team rating” using the Swiss round format. (As if the team was an individual.)


5 game Swiss tournament game 60/ 0 delay. (Each game is 60 minutes with no delay)

Registration from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. First round starts at 9:15 a.m. (hopefully)



  • Team trophies for the top 3 scoring teams.
  • Individual medals for up to ten teams by the team’s placement.
  • Individual trophies for the highest scoring player playing Board 1, Board 2, Board 3, and Board 4.
