PIZZA Chess: Season 2: The Bish1UP Series
Hello Chess Fanatics, 1Uppers, PIZZA people, and all you other hiveans out there. This week I am excited to announce PIZZA Chess Season 2. The Prize Pool is spilling out of the coffers this time 1UP/Cartel Prizes, PIZZA, and a different format than in the previous series of tournaments (as per the request of commenters in the previous post). This series will be held in 3+2 blitz instead of 5+0 like last series, to pull a greater pool of players. This tournament will be held between 10 tournaments. A grand event to commemorate the grand event that is the 1UP Cartel and hive.pizza partenership, this series will hold a plethora of prizes contributed by: @flauwy 1500 1UP, @thebeardflex 50 PIZZA and a steam key, @dibbler-dabs 50 PIZZA, @huzzah 50 PIZZA, @a1-shroom-spores 80 PIZZA, @h3m4n7 50 PIZZA, and all of you for your participation so far. DEC, LVL, and other various trimming to fill in the gaps will be paid for by myself. Please give all those folks who contributed to this tournament series a round of applause.
The first 5 tournaments (including the one later today as hinted and teased at in various posts on this account leading to his announcement) will be held as qualifiers. Any who reach top 10 qualify in ANY OF THESE FIRST 5 TOURNAMENTS will be able to compete in the last 5. What format will the finals be? Stay tuned to find out chess players (Perhaps a follow would do the trick but what do I know). The prizes in the last 5 Tournaments will be 380 PIZZA, 1500 ONEUP token, a Steam Key and a few hidden participation prizes TBA. The second half prize distribution will be announced as we draw nearer to the finals also.

First Half Prizes: CARTEL/PIZZA Partnership Goodies
As seen in banner, the discords, the blockchain, hive, and many places at this point. hive.pizza Guild members and 1UP content creators have come together to form a partnership not only in content psting, but in liquidity pools, gamer collabs, and events like this one. The first series will not have 1UP or PIZZA as prizes but instead will boast the following prizes. For each tournament the prizes will be the following. The finals will follow in suite, rewarding participation to all of you participating in this event.
