Yes! And you missed it! Unlucky right? No worries, I will definitely host another one in the near future (maybe even next month?). The original blog with the details regarding the tournament can be found here. A quick summary: The tournament was an 3 hour long arena with the following prizes:

#1 - One year of Diamond membership

What do the standings tell us? That everyone, regardless of rating had a fair chance of winning a prize! Just look at the #7 claiming a one month diamond membership, with a rating of 1349!

Clips

The first clip shows two heavy weights fighting it out on 64 squares. However, things don't always go as planned do they...

The next clip is something I love the most about the game. Where both players are playing on time and chess is something to get really hyped about:

What's next?

Another tournament of course! This was an amazing success and I really enjoyed doing it. Maybe more prizes? An actually skillful commentator? Who knows! Keep in touch so I can update you when the next one is:
