The ICGA is pleased to announce that the World Computer Chess Championship tournaments in Stockholm (July 13th-19th) will have a total prize fund of 5,000 Euro (approximately USA$6,000).
Before deciding how to allocate this prize fund we would like to hear from prospective participants as to how they believe the money should be split. In particular we would appreciate input on two questions:
[a] How should the 5,000 Euro be split between the World Computer Chess Championship, the World Chess Software Championship (uniform platform event), and the Would Computer Speed Chess Championship?
[b] Should the total for each tournament be given as one prize, or should there be two prizes or three?
Please let me have your input not later than May 6th, to firstname.lastname@example.org
Kind regards to all.
