Goddesschess has sponsored prizes for chess femmes since Hales Corners Challenge VIII, in October, 2008. My, how time flies! Every Challenge I've threatened to show up and play. Every year I've chickened out.
We've established a new prize structure for chess femmes who play in the HCC XII. Any win and draw by a chess femme will win $, regardless of final ranking. Prize money will increase for wins and draws against higher-rated players in a tiered system. Prizes for chess femmes who play in the Open Section will be double those in the Reserve.
Stay tuned for details. As we've done for the past few HCCs, the top female finisher in each Section has her EF paid by Goddesschess for the next HCC, should she choose to play.
