WCH prize fund - EUR 30,000

Hello to all.

A great news ! .. This is now confirmed just before the start of money tournaments, a german bank joined FICGS to guarantee a prize fund that just increased from EUR 2,000 to EUR 30.000 for the winner of the 2nd FICGS chess world championship !

Ads for both current sponsors will be displayed permanently in a few days on the site, thanks again to them, it will give a new dimension to this chess competition for sure ! .. Still looking for a second sponsor for the FICGS world Go championship, at the moment a japanese firm offers a prize fund of $1,500

Best wishes and have good WCH games !

Here in the backward US, EUR 30,000 would be a big prize -- but 30.000 isn't worth so much ;-)

Maybe Mr Danilov is in charge of Fide's printing press?!
