TV will be broadcasting the Play-offs and selected Round Robin Games on Sheet A. A team might be asked to play the same sheet and stones more than once to allow the organizers to follow the TV schedule.
The Prague Classic 2022 will be played in four groups, each of six teams. Eight teams qualify for the Play-offs, namely the top 2 teams from each Group (WCF Ranking System). All games will consist of 8 ends and will be played with a time limit of 1 hour and 50 minutes. When the clock reaches 00:00, the ongoing end will be completed and 1 additional end will be played, unless the time runs out in the 8th end. There is no 4th end break.
Unless stated otherwise, WCF rules will apply. No Tick Trial Rule is applied. No communication between coaches and teams on the ice is allowed, except for the pre-game practice and Time-out in Play-off games.
Stone Colour, Pre-Game Practice, Hammer, DSC
The team listed on the top of the scoreboard will play with the red stones. For each teamʹs first game in the Round Robin there will be a 5-minutes practice. A coin toss will decide, which team practices first. At the conclusion of the practice the team will play one LSD towards the Home End to decide Hammer. Teams may choose Clockwise or Counterclockwise rotation, any player may throw. At the conclusion of the first game and for the next 3 games, the teams will play one LSD (rotation optional) towards the Home End. This will be 5 LSD stones in total for the 5 games played in the Round Robin. These stones will be measured and set to determine Hammer in the following Round Robin game and count in relation to the overall competition DSC result of the team. Winning team delivers first LSD. The worst of the 5 LSD scores is cancelled. The distance between the stone and the button (center of the house) is measured to the nearest part of the stone in centimeters with an accuracy of 0.1 cm. If the stone ends up outside of the house or it has been touched / moved by the player of the delivering team, it will be noted as 185.4 cm. At least 3 players must be present on the ice, when the LSD is being delivered. If not, the team’s LSD will be noted as 185.4 cm for each LSD.
There will be no Time-outs in the Round Robin games. If a Round Robin game is tied at the conclusion of the 8th end, one Extra End will be played. If the team with Hammer fails to score, the game will be awarded to the opponent.
The top teams from each Group will be ranked 1st – 4th by W/L and DSC, respectively. The second-placed teams from each Group will be ranked 5th – 8th by W/L and DSC, respectively. This ranking will decide pairings for the quarterfinals with 1st playing against 8th, 2nd playing against 7th, etc. This ranking system will ensure that for the quarterfinals each game will feature one 1st and one 2nd placed team from the Round Robin. The higher ranked team in each Play-off game has Hammer and choice of 1st/2nd practice or Stone colour. The losing teams of the Quarter Finals will all finish at 5th place.
Play-off games are set to have a 5 minutes pre-game practice for every team. All Play-off games will consist of 8 ends and be played with Time Clocks of 30 mins and without 4th end break. A minimum of 6 ends must be played. Each team will be allowed one Time-out, even if they do not have a Coach. Travel Time for Home end is 75 seconds. For Away end, it is 105 seconds. Coaches must wear suitable and clean footwear and remain on the rubber walkways. In the playoff games, Extra Ends will be played until the game is decided.
