With FT Series 2 coming to an end, the Registration for Series 3 and Series 4 is now open for Registration. For Series 2, the list of winners for the three categories are as follows:

The FT Series will now take a one week break to allow for the XTiv Grand Final to take place on 10th (Round of 32), 14th and the Semi Final and Final on 15th August. The Xtiv Grand Final is the first of many events in recent years that uses the Knock Out format to determine a champion compare to the more favorable Swiss or Round Robin System. For the Xtiv Grand Final, a total of 96 qualifiers will fight it out to win the RM 2,700 total prize fund offered with the eventual winner to bag RM 1,000 grand prize in each of the contested category – U12, U18, Ladies and Open.

The FT Online Chess Festival – employing the same GP format and Knock Out Stage to be held in September, will be the second event to use the same championship format. However, for the FT event, the prize fund offered is RM 12,200 for three categories with the eventually winner to bag RM 1,500 for his effort, plus many more consolation prizes up for grabs.
