The format will be the same as our contest for the 2021 Speed Chess Championship. Simply pick the winner of every match in every round. The deeper the tournament goes, the more points you get for each correct prediction.








Round Matches Points/Match Total Points
Round of 16 8 10 80
Quarterfinals 4 20 80
Semifinals 2 40 80
Finals 1 80 80

If there are multiple perfect brackets or ties at the top, the tiebreaker system will loom large. Here it is:

  1. Your prediction of the final match score in the finals (in the 2021 JSCC, 17.5-10.5 was the final).
  2. If multiple entries, or none, predicted the correct score, the contest winner is whoever was closest to the correct margin of victory.
  3. If that is tied, the contest winner is whoever was closest to the correct score for the tournament winner.
  4. The last tiebreaker is the order your bracket was submitted, earlier is better. Why not create your bracket now?
