The prize fund was $150,000, with $40,000 for 1st place. Time control: 3 minutes per player for all the moves, with a 2-second increment per move from move 1. Monetary prizes to be shared equally among tied players. If there was a tie for 1st place, the top 2 players would play a playoff match. This match would include 2 games played with a time control of 3 minutes plus 2 seconds increment after each move, with a drawing of lots to decide which player would start with White.
