As this year these competitions are being run as a league rather than a knockout, any tie for places between teams will be decided first on the score between the two teams and then by board count as laid down in the LCU League and Cup rules above, i.e. 6 for a win on board 1, 5 for a win on board 2 etc. This is despite what may be displayed (erroneously) by the pairings/results software on chess-results.com.
Note for team captains: For each match both team captains should submit a photo/file of the team scorecard immediately after the match. Please send by WhatsApp (get phone number by email) or email to , Ideally this should contain players' names, codes and ratings as published on 1st June, used for 150 point rule. Then results should be online soon after that. Up to round 2, results were online less than 24 hours after each match, thanks to team captains' prompt submissions.
