Subject: Prized Tournments

Message:
Once it's time for short survey, how about tournments where winners receive any kind of prize. Subscritptions would cost some money, but winners would get any kind of reward (a chess board or airline tickets or membership discount, anything that could be sent to the winners).

We can't monitor who is cheating....

Message:
...and who is not.

If you put some prize in any GK tourney, many will be tempted to cheat, i.e. they'll use chess programs, etc.

So better not to put some pot, IMHO.

I'm just happy if I can actually win ONE round in a tournament. Playing for the sheer thrill of playing chess, not for winning prizes or money or even membership. I don't think everything in life has to have a monetary value put on it. Just my thoughts on the matter :)


Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say you're an astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off. He might call you on the radio and say he's not Dracula, but you just say, "Think again, bat man."

Not a Good Idea

Message:
Dont like the idea of prizes for winning tournaments.. Most of the players here play for FUN not for winning prizes..

Might as well you join the Real Life tournaments for real life prizes that you really desperate for..

I rest my case..

fun prizes

Message:
If tournaments involve prizes, they shouldn't be real, valuable prizes... only joke prizes.

For example, you could get a trophy icon next to your name, in the same fashion that premium members have pawns.
