How much does it usually cost for you to get into an OTB tourney? In my area I think it's quite expensive (20-40 dollars).
well for huge tournies like larry evans memorial its like $144
world open can be about $1000for hotel and plane and stuff
and the monthly club tornament is like $8
tournies cost too much for you. youd just be wasting your parents money more than you already do sitting on the computer all the time. dont bother, you arent good enough anyway
losing hurts doesn't it pet?
Ha, I can understand why you're angry, you were really taken to school on this one. Just be careful not to choke on your tears pal
It is the same in Denmark last tournament I payed 30.94 dollars.it may sound expensive but compared to other activities such as golf or other sports activities where you have to buy outfit and so on, chess is not that expensive. 30.94 dollars is less than a blu ray movie a blu ray movie in Denmark cost 35.36$ . a big mac in Denmark cost 5.37 $ whereas a big-mac cost 4.20 in US if we compare burgernomics.
If you're fortunate enough to live near an active chess club, it could be quite reasonable to attend the occasional tournament $40-80 entry fee. But add hotel, food, gas or other travel expenses and it becomes a tad extravagant.
