In the Non Stop tournament – especially for the American chess players!
We start on May, 4 at 05:00 p.m.New York time with the prize pool of US$ 3,500 and registration fee of US$ 20,00
Of course, the chess players from all over the world are welcome to participate, although they may find it somewhat difficult, because it will be midnight in Moscow, 02:30 a.m. in Delhi and 05:00 next day in the morning in Beijing. 🙂
In case of a tie-break in extra time it will be easier because it will start on Sunday at 10.00 a.m.CET (11.00 a.m. in Moscow, 01.30 p.m. in Delhi, and 04.00 p.m. in Beijing)
Breathtaking games. All starting from the original positions of the games played by American grandmasters: Joel Benjamin, Walter Browne and Larry Christiansen, famous U.S. chess-players. All the games, exactly from the presented positions, were won by a Goldchess amateur.
American players have to repeat the same achievement. But it is worth remembering that all the games were lost by White and we start from worse, difficult positions. Therefore each game requires virtuosity, and one has to reach the height of his or her skills to win, although the defending CEEC baby computer is not a particular chess eagle.
In the problem 4, Tala-Goldchess style, we may chose a checkmate in 27th move after sacrificing two rooks – prize US$ 500 and forced mate in 31st move after making 13 moves, also for the prize of US$ 500. The player who sends in both solutions will get 2 x US$ 500!
Please, feel invited.
