0000000Here is the tournament format and info:
0000000Location: The Seattle Chess Club (Basement Floor) 2150 N 107th St, Seattle, WA 98133
0000000Format: 8 games, Round Robin (RR), last game is "King of the Hill".
0000000Sign up by clicking on the date links above, it will lead you to the signup page. (There are no tournaments available right now)
0000000Entry fee is 50$. I know this is higher than entry fees we've had in the past, but this also means that the prize money for performing well will be higher.
0000000As before, divisions will be in groups of 8. If the number of players signed up does not divide evenly, the top division will have more players and a higher prize pool. This is in order to increase incentive for the top players to come!
0000000There will be no prize for high game/high play, however there will be a small prize for coming in 4th place.
000000032 player maximum (If we do reach this limit priority goes to the players who signed up first). Right now, I don't anticipate hitting this max, but if we do, I will consider changing the venue for future tournaments.
0000000Pay entry fees by mail (if paying by mail, checks only), paypal, or credit card.
0000000Here is a table showing the anticipated prizes for each division, assuming a player pool of 24 players (prize fund = entry fees - anticipated expenses. An expense report will be posted the day of the tournament):
Rank Prize
1st: $140
2nd: $100
3rd: $50
4th: $26

0000000This prize table will be adjusted to be slightly more if there are more than 24 players, and slightly less if there are less than 24 players.
0000000If you win a prize, you are expected to be present at the prize ceremony which will be right after we tally the final results at the end of the last game.
0000000If you are not sure whether or not you won any money, you'd better stay and clap for the winners!
0000000Lastly, here is the tournament expenses, again with the assumption of 24 players--this will be very slightly different if we have more or fewer players:
Income: $50 * 24 = $1200
Expenses: Room Rental: $50
Data Entry: 75$
Director's fee: $30
Ratings fees: (24 players * $0.50 * 8 games): $96
Total Expenses: $251
Income Less Expenses: $949
Total Prize Money per Division: $316
