In addition to the regular prizes, Goddesschess is sponsoring prizes exclusively for the chess femmes who come out and play. For Challenge XII, 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 chess femme may win. The top female finisher in the Open and Reserve sections will have entry fee for Challenge XIII paid for by Goddesschess, should they choose to play. The winner in the Reserve Section from Challenge XI was Rachel Ulrich - who recently participated in the Susan Polgar Invitational in Lubbock, Texas. No chess femmes played in the Open Section in HCC XI - and we want to change that!
We hope to see a record-breaking number of female players participating in the Hales Corners Challenge XII. Come on chess femmes, get that Goddess mojo working...
