South Potteries Rapidplay Championship

2 late withdrawals and 2 new entrants means that there are still 2 places available for the South Potteries Rapidplay Championship on Sunday. However, I need to know by Friday evening as the draw for the 1st round will be made in advance, on Saturday.

This year's format is a 6 round Swiss with 25 minutes on the clock for each player, plus 5 second increments. In the event of a tie there will be an Armageddon game to decide the winner, with White having 6 minutes and Black having 5 minutes, and no increments. In the event of more than 2 players tying, countback will be used to determine the 2 players who will contest the Armageddon game.
