MILLIONAIRE CHESS > REGISTRATION LIST

Millionaire Chess is happy to share our Registration List for 2014.  The ratings may not reflect the final ratings used at the tournament. International Players are marked with their flags.

Ratings alert! 100 points will be added to FIDE ratings. Please see the FAQs for our full ratings policy.

To prevent sandbagging, the tournament will use each players’ highest rating between December 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014. Also, the Tournament Director reserves the right to use CCA ratings, which are fair assessments based on Continental Chess Tournaments held by premier organizer Bill Goichberg over the last 40 years.

The chief organizer and chief arbiter reserve the right to use a player’s active rating in one rating system over a stale rating in a different rating system, regardless of the difference between the two ratings. These situations will be considered on their individual merits.

See list below as of September 1, 2014 with 550 registrants. List is still being updated:
