The Brothers of the Beta Beta Theta Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity present their first KNIGHT TO SIGMA Chess Tournament! This tournament will take place on February 23rd through the month of March in the School of International Service Room 333.

Entry is $14 per contestant. First, second, and third place winners receive cash prizes in proportion to [amount from tickets sold - cost of equipment]. Actual value of prizes will be announced on the first day of the tournament, Satuday February 23, 2013. Ratio of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize values will be 50:30:20.

All rounds are played in SIS 333 at 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM on the following dates:

Saturday February 23, 2013
Saturday March 2, 2013
Saturday March 23, 2013
Saturday March 30, 2013

Each Saturday will host two rounds, one at 6:00 PM and the next at 7:00 PM. Each round will run for 55 minutes. If there is no checkmate at the end of 55 minutes, the victor will be determined by summing each contestant's remaining pieces' relative value:

  • Pawn = 1 point
  • Knight = 3 points
  • Bishop = 3 points
  • Rook = 5 points
  • Queen = 8.5 points

The contestant with the higher sum will be declared victor.

This tournament will employ a SWISS-SYSTEM FORMAT for every round except the championship round, which will employ an ELIMINATION format. Each individual's advancement depends on his/her point accumulation:

  • 3 points per match win
  • 1.5 points per tie
  • 0 points per match loss
  • 3 points per bye

The two players with the highest accumulated scores will face off in the championship round, at which point the tournament victor will be determined by who wins the championship match.

Tournament entry is determined by a first-come basis. Entrants must submit payment of $14 before placement into the tournament is confirmed.

 

Sign up soon! We hope to see you there!
