Cape Town Blitz Tournament

2006 – Announcement

The Cape Town Go Club is hosting the 2nd annual Blitz Tournament!

Date/Time:
Tuesday November 21, 2006 – 7:30pm

Place:
A Touch of Madness, Observatory

Fees:
No fees are payable. The tournament is open to members of the Cape Town club. Note that it is quite straightforward to become a member of the club: indicate to one of the committe members that you wish to join, or simply register for the tournament and you will automatically become a member. Note that you must be ranked, i.e. have an official SAGC level, in order for the handicapping to be effective.

Format:
The tournament is still to be finalized, but will roughly be as follows:

absolute blitz (no byoyomi) – 12 minutes per side
30 minutes per round
standard handicaps will be applied
5 rounds will be played, with a 6th if required for tiebreaking
a swiss format will be used in order to do the pairing.

Rules
Some salient differences from a normal game

– 4 passes are required to end a game
– pushing the clock constitutes the end of the move (so moves can be taken back)
– removal of more than one stone entitles you to pause the clock
– it is not illegal or unethical to utilize any time advantage you may have

Please see the rules page for further details.
