MILLIONAIRE SQUARE PRIZE

One player in the 2nd Millionaire Chess Open will have a 1 in 64 chance to walk away a millionaire!The player will be one of the 36 who make it to Millionaire Monday, the final day of competition. The Millionaire Square Prize is in addition to the million-dollar prize fund that up to 1,200 players from over 40 countries will be competing to win.
Here’s how it will work: Of the 36 players who make it to the final day, nine winners representing each rating division will emerge from the competition. Those nine players will match wits in a fast-paced game of strategy (details to be revealed later) to determine who moves on to get a shot at the Millionaire Square Prize. The winner will then pick from 64 envelopes filled with cash and other prizes randomly placed on a giant chessboard. If the lucky envelope is picked, the winner will walk away an instant millionaire!
