I looked over the web pages and didn't see how the winner gets paid. Is in server money? I saw that server money can be converted to Euro or USD, but didn't see how. How do you do it?

My son and I signed on to the server. Both of us want to enter the tournament. He built his own computer which is faster than mine and now he thought entering a computer chess tournament and beating me would be neat. Is that an issue? He is 17 years 6 months and 2 weeks old. Is that an issue?

I didn't see anything in the rules that would keep him or the both of us from entering. I am not new to computer chess. Also, I entered all but one of the PAL Freestyle events.
