The corporate charity championship "I Fight to the End!" is held on March 12, 15, 17, 19, and 22, 2021, from 7 till 8:30 PM (Moscow time) on Lichess.org. Employees of various enterprises and organisations are entitled to take part in the event. A team consists of three participants. The entrance fee from a team is 50 thousand rubles. An unlimited number of teams per company is allowed to play in the tournament. Half of the derived funds will be doled out to the Lighthouse Charity Foundation, which offers help to critically ill children and young adults under 25 years old by supporting children’s hospices in Moscow and the Moscow Region.
There will be five separate tournaments in the championship, which will be played according to the Arena system on Lichess.org. Each tournament lasts 90 minutes. A participant may play an unlimited number of games in 90 minutes. The time control is 3 minutes plus 2 seconds increment per move. There will be 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 for a loss. If a player wins two games in a row, a doubling of points will be activated, and a flaming sign will reflect it. The following games will bring twice as many points, while a player is winning. Thus, a victory will fetch 4 points, a draw 2 points and "blow out the flame", while a loss will just "blow out the flame". For example, two wins followed by a draw will bring 6 points.
The winners and medalists of five tournaments will be determined both individual and team placings. The winners will get diplomas, cups, and memorable gifts.
