NEWS 1759 (6-May-04) May Tournament Marathon on ICC and new Monthly Standard with Prizes!
On Saturday, May 8, the Tomato family of automated TDs
on the Internet Chess Club will begin a 24-hour Marathon of
Tournaments. These tournaments will be divided into 5 sections.
There will be 2 classes (1600+ and U1600, both 5 0) for the
blitz players and 2 classes for the bullet players (1800+ and
U1800, 1 0) as well as a 15 0 standard section.

end of any tournaments ongoing at 11:59 am server time Sunday
The winners in each of the 5 sections will receive prizes. Winners
will be determined by cumulative number of points scored in the event.

Moreover, there is a new type of tournament: Play Standard each
Saturday at 12 noon for the whole month! The difference is that there
is no series of 4-5 single tournaments, but the tournament is paused
each week after 3 rounds and resumed on the next. Prizes will be given
to overall winners and players who take part in every round! Read
help Monthlystandard for information about this.
