The funny thing is; in 2008 I played in a Chess tournament at Gibraltar. The first prize was £1,000, second prize was £600 and third prize was £400.
In the last round a guy called Haddou Sellak and myself were both leading with 4 points each. We agreed a draw which guaranteed us joint first prize. It also puts pressure on the players who were behind us on 3.5 points each. If they want to get first prize they have to play for a win. A picture taken during the match is below.
Eventually the result turned out to be 3 players tied for joint first prize with 4.5 points each. In such circumstances the tournament organisers add together the first, second and third place prizes and divide the total between the 3 winners.
I ended up with prize money of £666.67. A very sinister omen don`t you think?
Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
