What is MrDodgy Invitational 2.0?

The Prestigious MrDodgy Invitational 2.0 (Bigger Better Harder) will take place between 12th-16th May.  16 players will compete in a knockout tournament for a prize fund of one (1) picture of the Organizer on a horse.  There may also be some cash prizes but that’s not important or interesting.

The Organizer

The organizer (Tournament Dictator) is MrDodgy.  From his ice-fortress in Northern Sweden, he controls vast swathes of the chess industry. Known to some as the greatest chess organizer in history, MrDodgy increasingly demonstrates the dangers of giving a guy on Twitter too much power. This is his 2nd super-tournament and he’s just as confused as you as to why it’s even happening.
