I know nothing about the rules for Tilburg.

I prefer 7.0 komi for 9x9 board as well.  I used 7.5 komi last year 
because some participants had not enough time to prepare their opening 
books.  Since KGS bot tournaments have used integer komi for 9x9 
already, there are no problems now, I believe.

BTW, does anyone know about 13x13 Go tournament for Tilberg?   Not in 
the game-list in the official site.
