Prizes will be given after the last round of each tournament. If not
otherwise indicated in the tournament specifications, each player will
play at least four games. The final number of the rounds and the time
of the tournament finish depend on the number of players. Each
players has at least 15 minutes for the start of the game and 15
seconds increment after each move (if digital clocks are available).
The starting times of rounds are only approximate because the duration
of rounds may vary. The increment may be reduced during the game in
the longest games.

In the Finnish Open Championship in Chinese chess starting time is 75
minutes plus 30 seconds increment per move. If the player doesn't keep
a score of the moves the increment is recuced to 15 seconds per move.
AXF rules http://www.clubxiangqi.com/rules/ will be used.

In the combined event player's percentage results from all tournaments
are totalled. The player with the highest percentage total will win a
free entry to all MSO 8 tournaments (8th Mind Sports Olympiad,
