Elite Junior Chess 2019 Grand Prix Series
**Junior entrants to the FIDE rated event will have their scores included +1 in the Grand Prix Series**
The Elite Junior Chess 2019 Grand Prix Series, is a series of four events organised by GM Nick Pert that are likely to take place in 2019. All players taking part in three or more events are eligible. Each player's top three scores from the series of three events will make up their Grand Prix score. The top seven scorers from the series will win a cash prize as follows:
1st - £100
2nd - £50
3rd - £30
4th - £20
7th - £5
If two players have the same top score, the 4th event score will be used as a tie-break. In the event that only one player has a 4th event score, that player will be deemed the winner. In the event that the 4th score is also tied, 1st and 2nd place prizes will be combined and split equally. If there are more than two players in joint first position for the Grand Prix prize after tie-break has been applied, all prizes will be combined and split equally.
