One-day chess tournament for all ages.
USCF rated, 3 rounds, G/85 d/5 with accelerated pairings
GM Timur Gareev and the first 11 Class-B or stronger players who registered
Entry fee: $50
Round times: 9 am, 12:15 pm, and 3:30 pm.  
Prize: $150 if you play against GM Timur Gareev and do not lose the game.  It is highly unlikely, but in case there are multiple winners, the $150 prize is shared.  If no player can claim that $150 prize, there will be a 1st place prize of $50 which everyone (except GM Gareev) is eligible for.
Throughout the tournament, between the games, when GM Gareev is available, he will help analyze/review games for players.  The goal is for each player to have 1 game analyzed.  You can also observe his analysis for other players.
Registration: Click here for pre-registered entries and registration form.  U1600 players will be put in the waiting list and can participate only if there are slots available.
