PogChamps is back again on Chess.com and the fourth edition of the personality-driven chess tournament touts a $100,000 prize pool.
The event will be hosted by all of the usual suspects in the chess game, including the Botez sisters, Danny Rensch, and Anna Rudolf, among others.

The competition, which takes place until Sept. 12, starts with group play that runs through next Tuesday, Sept. 7. Every day, except Friday, Sept. 3 will feature two to four matches between people in the same pool.
Each match will have two games of 10+5 time control. Players will get three points for a win and two for a win via tiebreaker. Each group’s top two competitors will advance to the eight-person championship bracket.
