The Micronational Chess Tournament Association has already completed the first game of the season, with Kit McCarthy duelling Dallin Langford.
The tournament, which is sponsored by the Micronational Dollar Institute, has a M$1 entry fee and the contestants have their eye on a M$10 prize.
Kit McCarthy defeated Langford after around 40 minutes, although some are calling for a rematch.
Horatio Eden and Thomas Merrell have also begun their first match.
The match between McCarthy and Langford looked something like this:
McCarthy was black, and Langford white.
McCarthy will now play the winner of Eden v. Merrell.
The tournament is still looking to fill its last three places, and interested parties are to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
