The December 2010 KGS computer Go tournament will be on Sunday December
5th, starting at 08:00 UTC and ending at 14:40 UTC.
It will be a 20-round Swiss (the longest that KGS allows) with 9x9
boards, 9 minutes each of main time, and Canadian Overtime of 25 moves
in 60 seconds. It will use Chinese rules with 7.5 points komi. There
are details at http://www.gokgs.com/tournInfo.jsp?id=548. The overtime
setting is intended to avoid losses on time through netlag.
Registration is now open. To enter, please read and follow the

are given at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/rules.html . Your bot need not
