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 :)

Best games of May - The results!
Hey Champions, Hello ChessMood Family!
 
It was very cool to see so many attacking and nice games. 
It was very cool to see your growth. 
Especially Aayush Shirodkar, Jyotsko Sengupta, Abhi Yadav and Tanmoy Mitra, we see how much work you do at home. Keep it going! 

It was cool to see you started to make draws and even win against GMs! 
Matt and Ainojin - respect! :)  

It was cool so many ChessMood members and PRO Members learning and practicing our variations. 
There is no way not to raise rating with this good work. 

Now, let's go to prizes. 
It's tough to find 5 winners out of 100+ games. 
Hopefully, if anyone of you will not be in the list, you'll not get upset and will continue working on chess and hitting your goals. 

Here we go! 

The 1st Prize goes to Hayk Khachikyan, for his crushing the Scandinavian with his brilliant Qh8 move!

The 4rd Prize goes Jeffrey Cobb, for his Grand Prix attack and 98% accuracy ???? 

The 5th Prize... There were a few nice attacks by Aayush Shirodkar, Jyotsko Sengupta and TK. 

We were not sure whom to give the 5th Prize, so we decided to give all of them. And not to share the Prize but to all of them give 75k MoodCoins.

Bonuses: 

Fahad Rahman gets a prize- Best Tactic of May! ???? His 1...Nf4 and 1.Rd5 were very nice! 

Tanmoy Mitra gets a prize "Guardian" for saving so many lost positions. 
Both of them get 50k MoodCoin.
