If there are 2 players with a perfect score in a section, they will split the prize unless one challenges the other to an unrated game to decide clear first, within 10 min from the end of their last game.  The game will be an Armageddon game and will follow these guidelines:
  • Failure to accept the challenge results in a forfeit.
  • The player being challenged calls Head or Tail when the TD tosses a coin, and can choose the color in the Armageddon game with a correct call.  Otherwise, the challenger chooses the color.
  • The player with White has 10 min, the player with Black has 7 min, and both have 5s-delay per move.
  • Black gets draw odds. To win the challenge, white must win the game.  To win the challenge, black may draw or win the game.
  • The game starts 15 min after the end of their last game, or earlier if both players agree to.
