Reminder: Round 4 of the Hivechess Tournament S14 , Friday 20h GMT
Dear chess fans!
Already round 4 of S14 is played this Friday, 23th Dec., at the usual time.
The current standings after the first three rounds you can find here. This time we will have a little more thinking time per game - unless you go berserk!
Mode: 5+2 (5 minutes per game, 2 sec. increment), arena tournament
Tournament Link: https://lichess.org/tournament/SVAZOCzE
The price pool contains already >218 Hive plus 500 LEO!
Every Friday is one round.
- - Registration fee (for the season, not for each round) is 1 Hive (or HBD), to be sent to @badge-646464, so far 32 players have registered.
Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2, 2+1,...).
The winner of each round gets the number of points equaling the number of players in that round, the second ranked one point less and so forth until the one on the bottom of the table who gets one point. In order to be counted, at least 3 games must have been played.
In case two players have the same number of points, the one who played less rounds is first. If that is equal too, then the average tournament performance decides.
After 6 rounds, the top 8 ranked players will enter a knockout stage to fight for the champion title, all others continue to play in 3 remaining rounds. The worst result in terms of points among the 6 (top 8) or 9 (rest) rounds will be deleted. The winner of the general section (= 9th ranked) qualifies for the playoff of the next season!
PAYOUT: The tournament points of the 6/9 rounds are summed up. 70% of all Hivechess-related post rewards go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 50 Hive as bonus, the prices for the other players who have entered the knockout stage will be calculated at the end of the season. The rest of the PP is divided among all players equally (40%) and according to the number of tournament points achieved (60%). Participation in 4 rounds is required in order to qualify for the prices.
There will be a special price of 5 Hive plus 50 LEO for the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round).
There will be a special price of 5 Hive plus 50 LEO for the best tournament report of the season (can be a post, streaming of a round, podcast, whatever)!
If I don´t know your Hive username, you won´t be considered for prices, so please let me know your Hive name in the comments! Group or badge accounts can participate but are not qualified for prices! Only individuals can get prices.
Please share this announcement among your (chess) friends and colleagues!
The more participate, the more fun! And maybe some are even interested to join Hive and it´s Chess Community?
See you on Friday and good luck to all!
