Dream Prize List

We all know that America is the land of opportunities. A place of ample rewards. Well, apparently, even if you score zero, zip, nada - they still give you a big fat paycheck. Just take a look at the prize list for the recently concluded US Championships. Kelly Cottrell-Finegold gets $2000 for, yep, zero points! That's more money than for the first placing at a decent Australian weekend tournament!

America, here I come!

By the way, Batchimeg Tuvshintugs, who faced 7 grandmaster opponents ended on 3.5 points and also went home with $2000.

It seemed to be the National championship, so probably some kind of "hidden" appearance money
