Platform: The Blitz Tournament will be hosted on KGS. If you don’t have a KGS account, sign up on their website. The KGS Terms of Service and Privacy Policy are listed on their website.

Description: Each day of the Blitz Tournament will be set up as a “mini-tournament.” We will play 3 rounds each day. Players will be split into groups of 8. So someone will always win all their games in each group. We announce winners of each group on a daily basis. Each day of the tournament I will regroup people so you won’t be in the same group of 8 people. After each day of games, players’ tournament rating will be adjusted. +1 for each win. There is no upper limit.

Byes: If you have to skip a day, you must request a “bye” from the TD before 8:00p EDT the night before that round. (Email the TD)[mailto:blitz@gocongress.org]. If a bye is not requested ahead of time and you miss a round, you will automatically forfeit the game.
Handicaps: Games will be even in most sections, with a compensation to white (komi) of 7.5 points. In handicap games, komi for white is 0.5 points.

Rules: AGA rules will be used. Komi for white is 7.5 points.

Prizes: The winners of each group will be announced daily. At the end of the four days, we will declare anyone that wins every single game to be an honorary AI. Top players in each section will receive awards. Award sections will be divided based on the number of participants at each entering rank.



There are 152 attendees registered to play in Blitz Tournament.
