Free tournaments with prizes

Hello to all.

You may have noticed that some free tournaments now have prizes :

FICGS__CHESS__CLASS__SM : 15 Epoints
FICGS__CHESS__CLASS__M : 5 Epoints
FICGS__CHESS__CLASS__A : 1 Epoints

FICGS__CHESS__RAPID__M : 2 Epoints
FICGS__CHESS__RAPID__A : 1 Epoints



Membership and Help sections have been updated, see :

"When a player wins a free tournament with a prize in E-Points, the current prize displayed for that tournament when the winners list is updated is added to his FICGS account. Prizes may change (most probably increase) during free events at the tournament director's discretion."

Previous chess class SM winners and a few others have received these prizes already.

It is also possible to win free Epoints by posting your affiliate link (see My account) on the web. For each new player referred by this link, 1 Epoint will be added to your account.

Thanks to all, I hope prizes can grow in the near future, also for the WCH cycles :)

Best wishes, Thibault

why have the GM class 2600+ in rating? Nobody in this site have that high rating?

Class GM

Hi Benjamin, I can't provide a 45 Epoints prize for 2500+ free tournaments at the moment and we still need more 2400+ players to start class SM tournaments, so class GM is still like closed at the moment.

Sponsor ?

Where do these Epoints come from ? From a sponsor ?

Thibault de Vassal    (2008-05-19 18:10:54)

At the moment these Epoints come from advertisers (Google Adsense & a few others). I hope real sponsors will follow :)

Understand right?

If i win a free prize tournament i get E-points. But if i want money i need to play in silver or gold tournaments?

Understand right

That's right. One win in silver/gold tournaments and you may ask for a money prize.

Hello Saurav, all explained here :

In a few words, just send an email by specifying the tournaments with entry fee & prize you won you'd like the money prize for.
