Thousands played Dos Hermanas, 32 qualify for April 6-7!


The twelve qualifying events of the Dos Hermanas Internet
Tournament on Chessclub.com had over 4,000 entries from March
30 to April 4!  Thanks to everyone who made this event a huge
success, including directors, computer busters, and players.

32 players qualified for the knockout rounds, which begin at
3pm ICC time on Friday April 6.  There will be two rounds of
knockouts on Friday, and the final three rounds will be held
starting at noon on Saturday, April 7 to determine the overall
winner.  Be sure to login and watch as the top players on the
internet compete for the more than $4,300 in prizes!

Each knockout match will be two games of 8 2 time control.  In
case of a tie after two games, there will be a single game
playoff in which White gets 5 minutes, Black gets 4 minutes,
but Black wins if the result of the game is a draw.
