Chess.com's Pogchamps Fantasy Contest

This year's free fantasy contest promises to be one of the most chaotic, exciting fantasy formats ever introduced, as participants must weigh multiple factors in their submissions while managing a tight budget. Each participant will start with 100 fantasy dollars to spend on four Pogchamps players who will form that participant's fantasy team.

The fantasy team's combined scores will determine each participant's final score. But there's a twist, points are based on their final finishing place within the bracket, with the winner and runner-up in the Consolation Bracket earning you more points than the quarterfinalists and semifinalists from the Championship Bracket. In addition, there are bonus points awarded to both the first and last place finishers within each group! As a tiebreaker, each player will submit the player who blunders their queen first, as well as their guess on who will win the consolation bracket, with the highest level of accuracy providing the best tiebreak score for each tiebreaker.

The overall winner will take home a $500 first-place prize, while second place will win $250, third will win $150 while fourth takes home $100. In addition, one random participant will take home a $100 prize, while finishers 4-10 will receive three free months of Chess.com diamond membership with places 11-20 taking home one-month diamond memberships. 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. While finishing-place cash prizes are open to all submissions, the $100 random entry prize is only eligible for premium Chess.com members who have gone premium on or before August 21, 2020.
