Millionaire Monday

Jones, Gawain C B vs. Swiercz, Dariusz

The 3rd edition of Millionaire Chess is taking place in Harrah's Resort, Atlantic City from 6-10 October 2016. It began with a 7-round Swiss open to determine the four players who compete in this final Millionaire Monday, where the 1st prize in the open section is $30,000. The other sections are U2200, U2000, U1800 and U1600. The four players in each section play semi-finals and then a final/3rd place match. Each match features two games with 25 minutes per player and a 5-second delay then, if needed, two 15+5 games, then two 5+2, then Armageddon, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 3.5, but a draw counts as a win for Black.
