    Event: MrDodgy Invitational 2.0

    The Prestigious MrDodgy Invitational 2.0 (Bigger Better Harder) will take place between 12th-16th May. 16 players will compete in a knockout tournament for a prize fund of one (1) picture of the Organizer on a horse. There may also be some cash prizes but that’s not important or interesting. The organizer (Tournament Dictator) is MrDodgy (/u/MrDodgyChess). From his ice-fortress in Northern Sweden, he controls vast swathes of the chess industry. Known to some as the greatest chess organizer in history, MrDodgy increasingly demonstrates the dangers of giving a guy on Twitter too much power. This is his 2nd super-tournament and he’s just as confused as you as to why it’s even happening.

    12 rounds of 5min with no increment, followed by an Armageddon game if tied at 6-6.

    Anish beats Jobava Baadur fairly handily in the final after 5 days of excellent chess, winning the famed picture of Mr Dodgy on a horse and a few yoyos on the side. Jobava took down some big names on his dance fueled charge to the final - Grishuk, Vidit and Adhiban!
