1998 Wisconsin Chess Tour

Final Results

The 1999 Tour had a change in the structure, the Expert prize was removed, and the Under 1600 section was split into the Class C section, and the under 1400 section. The payout was as follows:

1st:20% of money collected.
2nd16%
A15%
B14%
C13%
D&under12%
Junior10%

This change was approved by the Board and the Tour sub-committee (Hoffman, Feeney, Noel). Organizers/Directors should already have their 1999 Tour status requests in to the Board.

Once again, a Class A. player wins the overall in the WCA Tour. Neil Gleason overtook Bill Williams to win the Tour by 2 points.
