MC Newsletter #68 - No Millionaire Chess Open in 2017

Official announcement: No Millionaire Open in 2017

Quite a number of people have written to MC in the past few weeks asking about details for the next event. Unfortunately, due to lack of sponsorship, the decision has been made that there will be no MC Open in 2017. This announcement does not preclude the possibility of editions in future years. The dream of high-stakes events that promote the great game of chess to mass audience remains very much alive and is something the company, particularly co-Partner Maurice Ashley, continues to believe in as a worthwhile cause.

Corporate sponsor

If you know a corporate sponsor who might be willing to work with MC or have any other ideas on how to continue this budding tradition, please let us know. We can be easily reached at

Naturally, should there be any further developments regarding funding and sponsors, we will quickly announce our plans for upcoming years. In any case we will keep you updated via this newsletter and our social media channels. Thank you so much for the continued support.

Thank you

Once again a very big thank you to everyone around the world. 2017 promises to be a very busy year for the partners in the company as both Amy and Maurice will be traveling the world on a variety of exciting ventures. We wish you all the best for the new year and look forward to seeing you once again sometime soon. Much success to you all and thanks for being a part of the Millionaire Chess experience.

Best Wishes,
Amy and Maurice
