MC#3 Registration now open!!
The time is here! Millionaire Chess has opened registration and mere hours after opening, there were 13 signings. Millionaire Chess VIP Jones Murphy was was the very first registrant followed closely by Robert Beatty. The first Grandmasters to sign up were Ioan Cristian Chirila (Romania) and Niclas Huschenbeth (Germany).
Last year, MC#2 reached 50-50 status with 50 Grandmasters and 50 countries. It remains to be seen if “price elasticity of demand” will come into play. That is, the affect that lowering the entry fee will have on the number of registrants. There is also the change of location which carries the highest concentration of chess players in the country.
Players will have easy access to New Jersey and the numbers should easily eclipse 1000. While the entry fees are lower, so are the prizes. The prize fund is $510,000 based on 1800 entries of which 60% guaranteed. The more players entering the tournament, the highest the percentage guaranteed. So go ahead and register for one of America’s marquee tournaments. The tournament will be at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, Jersey on the dates of October 6 – 10, 2016. Be there!

Doesn’t just 19.Rf1 wins????? idea of 20.Bg5. maybe I’m missing something?
Looks like Re5 gives black the initiative.
Are you playing in the MC3?
Wow strong game by Kamil just about had that guy busted! lol good to know!
I predict MC3 will be a record breaker! And probably become The Annual Chess Tournament. The team made some clever modification, and I am already envisioning what MC4 will look like.
BTW, I will play in MC3 and I expect to win the U18! Maybe I won’t to avoid malicious tweets!
I hope to play in MC3, should know for sure as the tournament approaches.
yea, missed 19…Re5! its hard to find a good move for white, ok 17. e5 instead of 17. f6. Maybe Dr. K didn’t like 17… d4..its a mess, but I like White attacking chances, although; black counter attack might become decisive.
I think it makes a lot of sense to tag an additional $200 fee to those who are rated U2200; I would have tagged a $400 fee to completely encourage them to play in their sections. As for the unrated the $200 fee is ok since it is assumed that they do not have a ratings do could potentially be a sandbagger.
Gotta show Akobian vs So to the kids…..geezz, crushing!
