3rd - 2000
4th - 1200
5th-8th 700 each

Class Prizes (9000) 36%

U2200 - 1100, 600, 325
U2000 - 950, 450, 300
U1800 - 700, 400, 275
U1600 - 600, 300, 250

Largest Upset 200


Issues to settle about Prizes:

 

Anti-sandbagging policy from the 2009 CO, which was also contested in one Open section:

*Each participant can claim only one prize.

 If you are more than 200 points below your highest rating, then you will only be eligible for the class prize 200 points below your highest rating. For example, if your highest rating ever was 2250, but you are now rated 1990, you are eligible for the Top <2200 prize, but NOT the Top <2000 prize. 

"Highest rating" includes CFC and FIDE ratings. For Americans, "highest rating" includes your USCF, CFC and FIDE ratings.

 

This is clear, but not necessarily fair to those whose ratings have dropped for natural, non-sandbagging, reasons. - JKU
