Virginia State Championship Rules
(VA Commonwealth Tournaments are usually scheduled 3rd weekend in September)
"The Annual Old Dominion Checker Association Virginia State Open Tournament"
The VA Masters & Majors Champions
are the winner of their respective division, if top finishers are tied in match points, then honor
points are used to separate finish position; otherwise, they are Co-Champions, or if the top finisher is a
non-resident then the next place VA finisher below him is selected.
In the event of a single class tournament, the Majors winner is selected from
the middle of the contestant field, less withdrawals, if the contestant field is
odd this mid number is rounded down, if no withdrawals, then the mid number
is still rounded down (fraction dropped). When the
mid finisher is a non-resident then the nearest next place VA finisher closest
to him is
selected. Only VA residences may be a VA State Championship title holder.
