View Full Version : My Dream Kind of Tournament

08-02-2008, 09:13 PM
10 player round robin (Fide-Rated to make it more attractive)

Fee/Prize structure (I am taking MCC as an example)

Entry fee: $50 ($60 for those who are not MCC members)

Basic expenses: Fide registration fee $100 ACF rating fee $50

Prize money 1st.$200 2nd 100.

Depending on players availability it is possible to play 2-3 games a week.

So how to get together a field of 10 players? simple! Just ask chess players to sign up for the tournament in advance (e.g. pay $10 deposite) and when 10 players register - registrations can close..and the tournament can start!

I spoke to a number of players (e.g Brendon, Sarah etc.) and they recon its a good idea and would love to play.

So make a nice round-robin fide-rated event happen at your club.
P.S And if MCC holds on of these, i will be more than happy to play!

Or ye, and if you want to play in tourney like this at MCC message me!
