Chess.com's Candidates Fantasy Contest

This year's free fantasy contest, composed by one of Chess.com's resident statisticians, Michael "ChessByNumbers" Chen, promises to provide a stiff challenge as participants must be as accurate as possible in their submissions while managing a tight budget. Each participant will start with 100 fantasy dollars to spend on three Candidates players who will form that participant's fantasy team. The fantasy team's combined scores will determine each participants final score. As a tiebreaker, each player will submit their projected final standings of the Candidates, as well as four players' final scores, with the highest level of accuracy providing the best tiebreak score for each tiebreaker.

The overall winner will take home a $1,000 first-place prize, while second place will win $500, and third place will win $300. Fill out the form below to enter the contest. Please note that each Chess.com member is limited to one entry, and members with multiple submissions will be disqualified.

Non-premium members are eligible to win premium memberships, ranging from one-month gold memberships to one-year diamond memberships. Note that only paying premium members are eligible for cash prizes in Chess.com's Candidates Fantasy Contest. Cash prize winning participants must be a paying premium member on March 17, 2020.

Late entries will be accepted, though any points gained by each entry's team members for games in progress or games completed prior to submission will not be included in that entry's point total.

Now's your chance to join in on the drama and fun! Draft your fantasy team and play Guess The Move every round while you catch all the action at Chess.com/TV!
