Millionaire Chess Open 2015.

The 2nd Millionaire Chess open took place 8th to 12th October 2015. 7 rounds of open chess followed by tie-breaks produce four players for the knock-out segment and the main prizes.

Nakamura didn’t have it easy earlier having to go to tie-breaks to secure his place in the Semi-Finals.

The second edition of the tournament took place from 8–12 October 2015 at the same location. The second edition changed the structure slightly. The U1400 and U1600 sections were merged into one and an unrated/provisional section was added. Players had to have played 50 games under a recognized rating system to play in any section other than the Open and unrated/provisional sections. Player’s highest rating from December 1, 2013 and the time they registered was used to prevent sandbagging. The winner of the Open section and recipient of the highest prize of $100,000 was grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura who defeated grandmaster Le Quang Liem in the final round of Millionaire Monday. The third place winner was Yu Yangyi once more after defeating Aleksandr Lenderman in the third place playoff.
