Besides our regular prize fund, there's something very special to win in our next Titled Tuesday tournament, on Tuesday, June 5: The best male and best female player will earn an expenses-paid spot in the Chess.com Isle of Man International.

You might have noticed that this year's Chess.com Isle of Man tournament (October 20-28) will be strong—ridiculously strong. Right now, the lineup of the masters includes Vladimir Kramnik, Ding Liren, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Sergey Karjakin, Wesley So, Hikaru Nakamura, Levon Aronian, Vishy Anand and even Fabiano Caruana, who plays a world title match only a few weeks after.

You might also have noticed that entries for the main event are already closed. It's a popular idea, to rub shoulders with top 10 players!

However, there's still a chance to get in. For that, you need to play some good chess on the first Tuesday of June.

Two tickets to Isle of Man are for grabs in the next Titled Tuesday, June 5. The best male and best female player in that tournament will be allowed to enter the masters, and their accommodation and travel costs will be covered by Chess.com and the organizers. (Note that these places will only go to players not already on the entry list.)

These prizes will be added to our regular $1,500 prize fund for Titled Tuesday:
