Cape Town Blitz Tournament
2007 – Announcement
The Cape Town Go Club is hosting the 3rd annual Blitz Tournament!
Tuesday November 27, 2007 – 7:30pm
A Touch of Madness, Observatory
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.
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.
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.

The winner of the tournament will be named the 2007 Cape Town Blitz Champion.
Since the games will be lightning games, they will not count as ranked games.
