Hey guys, I was reading about a new chess tournament that is starting up next year, 2014, in Nevada. I haven't seen anyone post about it, so I'm wondering if it's a scam, and if it's not, what most people think about it? I hope to hear more from the chess community about this tournament :)
There is a website for it. $1,000 entry fee and if they don't get at least 1500 entries the event will be canceled.
It's being organized by Maurice Ashley.
