Reminder: Round 5 of the Hivechess Tournament S16 , Friday 20h GMT
Dear chess fans!
It is almost half time in S16 already, round 5 is played this Friday, 15th Sep., at the usual time.
The current standings after 4 rounds you can find here.
In light of the recently finished "2023 Champions Showdown: Chess9LX" we will play this time Fisher random chess (as it is called officially by FIDE). It is also called Chess960 because there are 960 different starting positions!
Mode: 3+2 (3 minutes per game, 2 sec. increment), 70 min. chess960 arena
Tournament Link: https://lichess.org/tournament/kHLlEHwI
The price pool contains already app. 295 Hive!
- All (untitled) players are welcome, also newbies, you just need a free Lichess-account and join our team in Lichess here (password is "Hive")!
- Every Friday is one round.
- Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2, 2+1,...), sometimes Swiss, sometimes maybe Chess960 (Fischer Random).
- 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 (i.e. the Lighteye-scoring). 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.
- PAYOUT: The tournament points of the 10 rounds are summed up. 65% of all Hivechess-related post rewards go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 25 Hive, the runner-up 20 and the third 10 Hive bonus. The rest of the PP is divided among all players according to the number of tournament points achieved (60%) and the number of rounds played (40%).
- There will be a special price of 10 Hive for the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round, if at least 6 rounds are played).
- Five randomly selected players that participate in at least 8 of the 10 rounds will get rewarded with 100 LEO each, sponsored by @leofinance (thanks, @anomadsoul!).
- 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! Titled players, community 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 tomorrow and good luck to all!
