2009 Cape Town Blitz Announced

This is just to notify players in the Western Cape that we will be holding our annual blitz tournament on Tuesday the 10th of November 2009, at our usual venue of the Touch of Madness. Please make sure you get there before 8pm if you wish to play. There are no entry fees, and the only requirement to play is that you have a stable rank on the SAGA system.

Detailed rules are available, but the basic idea is that the games use absolute time, usually 12 minutes per side. The games will be played with full handicap, including 10 points of komi per handicap stones if the rank difference exceeds 9 stones.
