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 
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 by using "@" and ".").
