Tournament rules summary:

We will play a total of six rounds. The first four rounds will be played after a predetermined schedule, ensuring new opponents in every round. In the last two rounds participants will be placed according to their current rank in the tournament: the four leading players will play against each other and so on.

The rounds are played on time: after 55 minutes you can not start a new game; likewise if you finish the full game (2 winds) before time. We will play with the normal rules regarding the rotation of the dealer.

Note that the number and length of rounds may change depending on the number of participants.
