DCC 2019 Tour
Current prize fund: $1,649.00 (Minimum $1,500.00 Guaranteed)

The purpose of the DCC Tour is to encourage participation in the Tuesday night monthly tournaments and the three Major weekend tournaments the DCC stages each year. - Tribute to Martin Luther King, the Denver Open, and the Fall Classic. - The Tour is also intended to spark the competitive nature that is inherent in all chess players. As players are only competing against players within their own rating class for Tour points.

DCC Tour points are awarded for tournament registration and score. DCC membership is not required. Any and all players who play in DCC tournaments accumulate tour points over the course of the year. The only stipulation being for a non-member to claim a prize, the player would need to purchase at least a 3-month DCC membership. DCC memberships are: 3 months, $17 - 6 months, $28 - 12 months, $45.

The point structure is such that the maximum possible total from the three Major weekend tournaments is nearly equal to the maximum total from playing on Tuesday nights. The most points are garnered from Standard rated games. Quick and Blitz rated games score correspondingly less points. Only the MLK, the Denver Open, the Fall Classic and Tuesday nights will be DCC tour events in 2018.

The DCC Tour is entirely funded by withholding a portion of each entry fee. - on Tuesday nights: 50 cents, at the Major tournaments: 2 dollars - The DCC guarantees a yearly prize fund of 1500 dollars. Any and all money collected over that amount increases the prize payout.

The DCC Tour runs from the first Tuesday in January through the last Tuesday in December. There will be an equal distribution of the prize money to each of six rating classes: Master/Expert, Class A, B, C, D, and E. To determine a players year end rating class, the players average rating over the course of the year will be used. Based solely on a players tour point total, the DCC will award three prizes for each rating class: 1st, 50% - 2nd, 33% - 3rd, 17%. The DCC reserves the right to add special prizes if warrented.

DCC Tour points and funding are automatically tracked and tabulated by Caissa Chess software.
