Sunday Quads: July 15

Starting in February the time control changed from G/45;inc15 to G/50;inc15 so each player will get around sixty minutes total for most games, making it very similar to the overall amount of time a player gets for a game at the Game in 60 which has proven very popular for a faster time control tournament.

Also, the rapid will now be six rounds, matching the format of the Unrated Rapid, and the blitz will be eight double rounds.
