Players in the Western Cape are hereby notified that we will be holding our annual blitz tournament on Tuesday the 26th of November 2013, 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 of 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.
Can participants please bring sets and, more importantly, clocks!
Recent winners include Andrew Davies (2009 and 2010), Chris Welsh (2011) and Sam Scott (2012). We have to go back to 2008 to find a non-dan winner, that was Ashley Ross, 15k at the time.
