A-tournament: Adult Men ( Single Round Robin. The time allowance is 120 minutes per player, no byo-yomi.)

The winner of the tournament will receive a prize of 3000 RMB( =300 Euro) , The last 4 players will be relegated to B-tournament next year. This year we will adopt an extra bonus: The winner of each game will receive a 50-RMB bonus, but there is no bonus for a draw and the loser.
