After two editions of the Millionaire tournament we noticed with an astonishment that chess players treated the prizes with disbelief and the tournament itself as an abstraction which lead them not to play it. We would like to clarify that. The Millionaire tournament with one million participants is not an abstraction, it’s a reality show which will be carried out in the next 2 years. In the meantime, we will be organising national tournaments from the Challenge series, open, however, to players from all around the world, in cooperation with the best organisers from these countries. When it comes to prizes, we also want to be straightforward. The $400.000 prize pool is just an introduction, we’ll give it to 20.000 participants. Under the tab named –Results– it is said that:
Millionaire tournament, with a prize pool of $400.000, guaranteed for 20.000 participants. For one thousand participants, the prize pool is $20.000. Below 1000, at the discretion of Goldchess.
So, the tournament is actually real, only the prizes change and as money does not grow on trees, the prize pool with fewer participants is smaller. Virtually everyone can play in the Millionaire tournament as Goldchess means tournaments of equal chances. On our website, there are no favoured players like in the traditional tournaments, moreover, they do not have a monopoly on winning. Players who are first to defeat our educational computer in a given way are the winners.
An amateur without ranking or a player with a ranking of 1400 may always win. Such situation took place in India, you may read about it under the–Window on the world– tag, and there are plenty of examples of it happening. http://www.goldchess.com/en/other/report/24.html
So, incredible prizes and equal chances for everybody is what Goldchess is all about. And there’s even more. In Goldchess, we give you the opportunity to create your own beautiful games which together with you, their creators, will go down in the history of chess.
