The matches, consisting of 2 (4 in round 7, and 6 in the championship) games, were played at the rate of 1 game per day, with time limits of 40/100, 20/50, and all remaining moves in 10 minutes. 30 seconds were added to the clock after each move, commencing from the first move. No adjournments!

Should the match be tied, on the following day, a second match would be played, all game in 25 minutes for each player, with 10 seconds added to the clock after every move. Should this second match be tied, in rounds 2 - 7, another match would be played, all game in 15 minutes for each player, again with 10 seconds added to the clock after every move.

If the score were still tied after the 2d match of round 1, or the 3rd match of rounds 2-7, then sudden death games, 4 minutes for White, 5 minutes for Black, 10 seconds added to the clock after each move, were played. In case, of a draw, another game would be played. Should the arbiter feel that too much time was being taken, he (or she...) could require one sudden death game, 6 minutes for white, 5 for black, no added time. In event of a draw, black advances to the next round.
