In both of the new tournaments, the format will be all-play-all twice. A 1-1 result will stand; there will be no tie-breakers.

The default time-limit will be 30 minutes on each clock, but there is scope for you to decide on another time-limit with your opponents.

Start as soon as you want to, using the rough timetable of one round in February and two rounds per subsequent months, which should enable the tournaments to draw to a close at the end of April 2021.
