The August 2010 KGS computer Go tournament will be next Sunday, August
5th, in the Asian evening, European morning, and American night,
starting at 08:00 UTC/GMT and ending at 13:00 UTC/GMT.
In response to postings on this list, it will not be 9x9 as scheduled,
it will be 13x13. I apologise for not giving more notice of this: I
have spent most of the last week at the European Go Congress in Finland.
No other 13x13 events are planned at present, but if there is demand for
them I may choose to include them regularly in the KGS monthly bot
It will be a 15-round Swiss with 19x19 boards, 9 minutes each of main
time, and Canadian Overtime of 10 moves in 30 seconds. This overtime
setting is fast, but not as fast as for previous events, in the hope
that no games will be lost entirely because of netlag. It will use
Chinese rules with 7.5 points komi. There are details at
Registration is now open. To enter, please read and follow the
instructions at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/how/index.html . The rules
are given at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/rules.html . Your bot need not
be strong to enter, indeed weak and new bots are particularly welcome.
Please send your registration email (with the words "KGS Tournament
Registration" in the title) to me at maproom at gmail dot com (converted
to a valid address in the obvious way).
