Dear chess friends!
As promised, last Sunday I distributed the prices and payouts from season 1 to all participating players. The price pool at the end was 379,something, so rounded up 380 Hive. Quite nice - thanks to all the Upvoters and Supporters!
Here is the payout table:
|Rank||Hive name||Lichess name||Rating||Rounds played||Rewards (Hive)|
|1 and first price||@jaki01||jaki01||2311||10||114|
|2 and 2nd price||@stayoutoftherz||stayoutoftherz||1961||11||76|
|3 and 3rd price||@schamangerbert||HerbyW||1727||10||38|
After a little break now the new Season of Hivechess Blitztournament (called "Summertime") starts.
The first round is played tomorrow and each Friday, 19h GMT. Since it is quite late for some players, I moved the whole season 1 hour earlier.
Time Mode: 5+0 (5 minutes per game, 0 seconds increment)

- PAYOUT: A season goes over 10 rounds and points are summed up. All Hivechess-related post rewards are pooled and 90% go to the price pool. The winner will get 30% of that price pool, the second 20%, the third 10%, the rest is divided equally among the other players active on Hive or Steem, according to the no. of rounds they have played. So everyone has a chance to get something and the more you play the more you get! Prices are payed out only in Hive Tokens.
- If I don´t know your Hive (or Steem) username, I can´t consider you in the rankings, so if new here, please let me know your user name in the comments
Please share this announcement among your (chess) friends and colleagues! The more participate, the more fun! And maybe some are even interested to join Hive and it´s Chess Community?
I wish you all GOOD LUCK! (I know luck has nothing to do with it, or does it?)
