    Millionaire Chess is coming up with an iPhone app just to cover their events, parings, announcements, chess tweets etc. How cool is that?

    This was just posted on facebook today:

    [2014-07-18, 10:10:35 AM] Amy  Lee: Today's posting on Maurice's wall on FB:  Millionaire Chess takes security and sandbagging very seriously. We have already uncovered a blatant sandbagger trying to enter our tournament, and have turned the case over to the authorities. We are determined to run as clean a tournament as we possibly can.
    [2014-07-18, 10:11:28 AM] Amy  Lee: then lots of comments but this is one of Maurice's reply "I think it is highly inappropriate to throw out names, even in jest. This is a serious matter that can permanently damage someone's reputation. But we take this very seriously and we will would rather not have business than allow the the wrong people to play in our event.

    As they identified a sandbagger, I believe they wont let him/her ever play in any Millionaire Chess tournament even in future. All the people who were thinking to try some dishonest way of gaining some advantage in MCO - this is a clear message for them. Its not only security - its 360 degree keeping eyes on the registrants.

    I've expressed my feelings/predictions regarding the tournament on the other MC thread, so I won't bore anyone with those here, but I think an app for pairings and results at chess tournaments would be pretty cool. Ideally the TD could post results of every board in real time, and the standings and Swiss pairings would automatically generate, so TDs wouldn't have to print out 30 pages before every round and I wouldn't have to dodge kids and remember my opponent's name and rating on my way to getting a scoresheet. In real life I think we would just have dozens of competing apps that don't work. But sometimes it's nice to pretend.

    What would you use to view this wonder app? Computers and smart phones aren't allowed in the tournament area.

    I am sure there will be lots of tweets, faceboon.com status messages, chess.com posts etc before, during and after the MCO tournament by players and their family and friends. During the tournament, in the tournament area, you can't use any device. But when your games is finished and you are outside of the area, you will keep tracking your potential competitors game status or result definitely. Or may be you will follow your favorite players games. Whatever it is, the app will be opening up doors of making chess more accessible to players and chess followers alike.
