ChessMood Open with $20,000 prize fund!
Dear chess friends!
I’m super excited to announce that on October 4-12 in Armenia there is going to be ChessMood Open tournament with around $20.000 prize fund.

By the way, right after it, we’re going to have “Yerevan Open” tournament (October 13-22) with a similar prize fund. So you can combine them and play two tournaments.
As there are no border problems at the moment, you can easily travel to Armenia.
Looking forward to seeing you soon and drinking something cold together :)

Study Group

Hey fellow Pro Members!

Over the next few months, I am going to be working deeper on our ChessMood openings and filling in my PGN files, so I can remember all the lines better. 

I am looking for anyone who wants to study with me, play these openings together, and discuss the ideas of the opening as we fill in the PGN files. We will work on 1 opening section per day so we don't confuse ourselves. The goal is to know all of our openings inside and out in the next 90 days! Everyone is welcome! Even our GMs, if they have time and want to pop in to give us words of wisdom!

I will be starting each morning at 9 am PST and working till 11 am PST on the ChessMood openings. I will be starting this tomorrow morning, since it is short notice for today, and will be working on this every day at the same time. I know the time wont work for everyone all the time, but I hope some of you will be able to make it once in a while.

If you would like to join me, please download the free voice chat app Discord and join my channel - https://discord.gg/fhZ2SP9 - so we can talk to each other while we work. It is ok if your English isn't the best, no one here will judge you, but it is important to be able to communicate. 

I will be starting with the white openings, and this week will be the Scotch. Please take the time to watch the first section before we start if you can. I look forward to seeing you all over the coming weeks and watching all of us grow in our knowledge!

Feel free to ask any questions about this study group below. I hope you all join me!
