2016 Millionaire Chess Open: Day Four

One of the most unique features of the Millionaire Chess Open is the qualifiers for Millionaire Monday. The final round of the preliminaries will determine who advances to the championship round of each section. However, today features some spellbinding playoffs as a result of several people will tie scores. The playoffs were round robin with time controls depending on how many players were in the tiebreak. However, all of the sections turned out to be 7m/3s.

There were also those who took advantage of the “Redemption Jackpot” feature where only the last three rounds are counted. In order to enter, one had to have a score of 50% or less after four rounds. The top scorers in all sections were lumped together. Kian Sol Morgan (under-1600) and Saket Kumar (under-2000) each won $607.50 for scoring a perfect 3/3 in the last three rounds.

So Millionaire Monday will begin with the top four players of each section playing a double round robin with the top two going for the title in the finals. The details of the qualifiers are listed at…
