SCC-style Tournament for U1400 - Win lessons from a master!

aranhawaii

Hey all,

I'm trying to put together a tournament (invite-only) for beginners... anyone who hasn't made it above 1400 in any time control on Chess.com. Could put together some HUGE prizes like lessons with a master chess player and premium memberships if we get enough applications.

Click here to fill out the app, and know that you'll need to upload a 60-90 second audition video which will be used in determining your eligibility as well as shown during the commentary show so fans can vote to support you!

Lessons with a master is huge?  Maybe if they're in the Riviera.

I think it would be if you were U1400.

What do we need to do in video? I didn't understand well. Can you help me there?

You should try to spread the word about this.

What's the Twitter account to follow?

Depends on what master. If the master coasts on his title and doesn't teach any thing new ( Magnus Carlson's video lessons, for example ) then it isn't huge.

Also this a wonderful idea. I'd join if I had consistent Internet access.

Just tell people about yourself. How did you get into playing chess? What are your chess aspirations? What do you do for work? Help people know about you and why you should be in the tournament.
