The Stellenbosch Go Club will be hosting the 2012 Stellenbosch Open Go Tournament. It is intended to be a qualifying tournament for the 2013 South African Candidates Tournament. Players of all level are welcome.
Sunday, 21st October 2012
Registration will start at 9:00
Room 3018, Mathematics Department (van der Sterr Building), University of Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch
The registration fee is R10 for SAGA members and R20 for other players. Players are requested to register in advance. Email your name, club and the rank at which you wish to enter to Steve Kroon (skr...@gmail.com). A late entry fee of R10 will be charged for players registering on the day of the tournament.
The tournament will be a 3 round MacMahon tournament, with the bar set at an appropriate level. The time limit will be 30 minutes main time and then Canadian byo-yomi 25 stones in 8 minutes, which equates to about 19 seconds per move.
