Hales Corners Challenge XII!

It's getting to be that time of year again - the Hales Corners Chess Challenge will be here in mid-October to welcome Wisconsin Autumn.

Four Round Swiss System - Four Games in One Day
Game in One Hour (60 minutes per player)

$35 – Open; $25 – Reserve
8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.: 10 am -- 1 pm -- 3:30 pm -- 6 pm
The playing venue is the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport Hotel—6401 S. 13th Street—414-764-5300, I94 to College Avenue East exit, College to 13th (one block), turn right on 13th to hotel (two blocks on right). 
The Challenge is worth 10 Grand Prix Points.

For Challenge VII Goddesschess is trying out a new prize structure.  Our goal is to encourage more girls and women to come out and play in this one day, four-round tournament and for the ladies who regularly participate in the HCCC, to aim for the higher prizes.

if you draw - you win $; if you win - you win more $.  If you draw or win against a player rated 100 or more points than you, you win yet more $; if you draw or win against a player rated 150 or more points than you, you win even more $$.  Prizes in the Reserve Section are one-half the prizes for chess femmes in the Open:

W 150 ELO or higher = $30
D ditto = $15

W 100 ELO or higher = $20
D ditto = $10

W = $10
D = $5

Goddesschess prizes are in addition to any other prize a female player may win.  The top female finisher in the Open and Reserve sections will have her entry fee for Challenge XIII paid for by Goddesschess, should she choose to play

Come on out and go for it, ladies.  Anything can - and does - happen in chess.  The Mighty Magnus Carlsen lost his R4 Olympiad game to a player rated more than 100 points lower.  Just saying...
