3-way tie in Stb 9×9 tournament

This year’s Stellenbosch 9×9 tournament had 12 participants, and used a 5-round Swiss format.

The tournament got off to an exciting start with the 2 top seeds, defending champion Konrad Scheffler and 1-kyu Andrew Davies, losing to Charl du Plessis and Hugo van der Merwe in the first round, leaving the tournament wide open. Jaco Swanepoel proceeded to be the only player to win his first 3 games, but in the fourth round he faltered, losing to Konrad Scheffler on time from a winning board position. This left 5 players with 3 wins after 4 rounds, and after the next round, 3 players remained on 4 wins out of 5 games. 2 players pulled out of the tournament in the last round, so it was decided not to use SOS or other tie-break mechanisms, but rather to leave the tied players as is.

As such, the tournament winners for 2006 were Konrad Scheffler, Jaco Swanepoel, and Steve Kroon.
