Extra Scoring System
While watching the Tour De France I wonder whether we can award points (and prizes) based on certain aspects of players play during games. In the Tour you can gain points for for winning specified sprints or by doing the best climb; in chess (with live boards) would it be possible to allocate points for best performance in different areas of the game, with prizes (or just recognition) for the players who scores best say in the opening, the middle or end game?

Not sure on what basis you would allocate points: for example is it solely based on the advantage achieved after x moves in the opening or would it be for following the book furthest (not sure if that would encourage learning or just dis-courage players from thinking for themselves).

Could this be used as part of a training event to incentives players ?
