Premier Chess First Annual Grand Prix Series Standings

Premier Chess has had a wonderful turnout in its first annual Grand Prix Series. Hosted by Grace Church School and Brooklyn Friends School, the series of tournaments has featured 44 competitors to date. The final tournament will be held on Sunday June 2, at the Grace Church School, in the heart of New York City at 46 Cooper Square, New York, NY.

The top three finishers will receive Amazon Gift Cards, while fourth to seventh place finishers will receive gift certificates to American Chess Equipment, one of our partners that provide the highest quality of Chess Equipment. Additionally, trophies will be handed out to the top 25% of participants, and medals will be given out to all participants with 2.5 points or more that do not win a trophy.

For a first place trophy in an individual tournament within the Grand Prix, three points are awarded. As such, two points will be awarded for a second place trophy, and one point will be awarded for a third place trophy. Additionally, five extra points will be awarded to each participant that plays at least one tournament in each school. After these scores are calculated, they will be multiplied by the number of tournaments in which the contestant participates. Therefore, if a contestant plays in all six tournaments, their total score will be multiplied by six.

Entry into a tournament costs $40 if the contestant signs up at least one month prior to the event. This fee becomes $50 if the contestant signs up a week prior, and becomes $60 if the contestant signs up by 12:00pm on the say of the tournament or onsite. The final tournament takes place on Sunday, June 2, leaving less than a week to sign up with the $40 fee.
