Masters: The first prize may not be shared. All other
prizes shall be shared where players have the same score (except
the Women’s First Prize).
In the event of a tie for first place, there shall be a speed
play-off. If there are four or fewer players tied for first
place, there will be a speed knock-out play-off for the first
prize of £20,000.
If more than four players tie for first place, the four players
with the highest performance ratings shall qualify for the
play-off to decide the first prize.
Women's Awards: If there is a tie for the top women’s
prize, the tie is resolved in favour of the woman with the
highest performance rating, who will receive the prize of
£15,000. All other prizes will not be subject to a tie-break and
prize money other than the first prize will be divided equally
amongst the players.
No player may win more than one prize in any
Challenger or Amateur Tournament.
Amateur: Players with neither a FIDE rating nor
a published national rating or grade are only
eligible for the Unrated Prize or Gibraltar
