Intercontinental FIDE ChessKid Challenge
Each of the two editions will be played in two sections: Ages 9-12 and 8 & Under. Ages are as of January 1, 2021.
The time control will be 10+2 (10 minutes starting time plus 2 seconds added per move) and each of the two editions will be 7 rounds. The expected length for each tournament is three hours.
The event will take place entirely on the ChessKid live server with fantastic prizes, including group lessons with former world champions Vishy Anand and Alexandra Kosteniuk, and current world rapid champion Humpy Koneru.
The Intercontinental ChessKid FIDE Challenge will be focused mostly on participation and fun, and as such, the top prizes will be awarded in a unique way to take pressure off of kids. For every half point earned, a player receives one "raffle ticket" into a drawing. For every win, a ChessKid receives two "raffle tickets" into the drawing. In addition, any player finishing the tournament receives a bonus raffle ticket.
