Chess Olympiad Notice: Brand New Brilliancy Prizes!

The Batumi Chess Olympiad Organizers have graciously approved my proposal to offer Brilliancy Prize each round

The NNLE and The Organizing Committee of the 2018 World Chess Olympiad are pleased to announce the special “Olympiad Brilliancy Prize” awards.

The prize for the most brilliant game will be awarded after each of the 11 rounds. All players are encouraged to submit their game for consideration for the daily prize to BatumiOlympiad@gmail.com

Every day, after each round of the 43rd Chess Olympiad, the judging committee, led by Grandmaster Susan Polgar, will choose the games (one in the Open and one Women’s Olympiad) as the “Game of the Round”.

The winners of those games will be awarded a small prize by the NNLE and The Organizing Committee of the 2018 World Chess Olympiad.

Finally, after the last round of the Batumi Chess Olympiad, the players who won the most brilliant game overall will receive a special prize.

Judging Committee:

GM Susan Polgar

GM Maia Chiburdanidze

IM Sagar Shah (ChessBase India/ChessBase)
