Millionaire Chess Tournament
A new tournament is on the chess horizon, Maurice Ashley's Millionare Chess Tournament. From the website, "Join us October 9-13, 2014 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Millionaire Chess Open. The tournament has a record $1,000,000 guarantee with only a $1,000 entry fee."
I am excited about this event and thus far my only complaint is there are no qualifier tournaments on chess.com to promote this event and have some exciting chess.
If you would like to see online qualifier tournaments please speak up and perhaps we can get chess.com or ICC to step up and support this great idea. The future of chess I think is a synergy between online and otb play.
