The price pool contains already 773 Hive plus 518 LEO!

Rules

  • Players of all skill levels are welcome, from newbies to experts, you just need a free Lichess-account and join our team in Lichess here - new: Entry Code is "
    Hive
    "!
  • The season goes over 10 rounds, every Friday is one round.
  • Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2, 2+1,...) and sometimes berserking is not allowed.
  • 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. Draws before move 25 will be sanctioned.
  • Occasionally a round may be divided into 2 skill classes.
  • 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.
  • The worst result from the season in terms of points achieved will not be counted.
  • PAYOUT: The tournament points 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 runner-up 25, the third 10 and the rest of the PP (minus 30) is divided among all players equally (40%) and according to the number of tournament points achieved (60%). 40% participation is required in order to qualify for the prices.
  • There will be special prices of 10 Hive plus 50 LEO each for the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round) and for the most rating points gained during the tournament (counted from after first to last participation). If a player would qualify for both prices, he still gets 10 Hive /50 LEO only and the second placed of each score gets 5/25.
  • There will be a special price of 1 Hive plus 5 LEO in each round for the game won with the biggest upset in rating difference.
  • 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 tomorrow and good luck to all!

On another note, yesterday the 2nd FIDE World Fischer Random Chess Championship has started in Reykjavík, exactly 50 years after the famous battle Fischer-Spassky in this city in 1972.
These 8 players will fight for the title:

In the first game between Magnus and Hikaru, Magnus blundered a bishop already in the first move!!

But on a second look, if White takes the free bishop, his Queen will get trapped!
