Brfs 11th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney

THERE'S ONLY 20 HOURS LEFT TO SIGN UP!

I don't know how much longer we can do this with the uncertainty of brainking's future but I'm going ahead and doing it for 2017 while we can. I've only allowed a tight 48 hour signup window for this "11th annual" so whomever signs up by midnight 3/17/17 will be able to participate. please join in for one more installment of the "Brfs St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 10 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual this is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 6 people per section, so pawns will need to have 10 open game slots at start time (or risk being auto-removed)! Time limits are set at 1 day 9hrs per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and we risk whatever uncertainty the websites future may have. I don't want that, and ideally I'd like the winner to be able to use the prize.

With the use of a tight 48hr signup window, we should get a relatively small tournament this year which also should help speed things along.

My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year, I can't believe we're already on the 11th one! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish this year? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2017) the tourney begins!

Good luck to all players!

Brfs 10th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney There are only 21 days left from today to signup!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm going now on a decade of hosting this challenging pente tournament here at Brainking! please join in for another yearly installment of the "Brfs St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"

Continuing the trend of a 2 player finish, last years tournament is close to wrapping up with Spavacz and be_water battling it out in the final round. ...the 4 wins match will still be the setting on a final round (if a 2 player - Round 3 happens again). This setting helps to ensure the tournament completes in a timely fashion.

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 9 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual this is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 6 people per section, so pawns will need to have 10 open game slots at start time (or risk being auto-removed)! Time limits are set at 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney won't finish before the 2017 St Patty's tourney.

Please keep in mind we've had quite the issue in years past of people using alternate accts (which messes with seeding) and not fessing up about it. Based on the results of THIS POLL, I'm going to be asking all such accounts (without an established Pente BKR) to let me know if this is a legit 'unrated' account or "other". If you fit into this category and I don't receive a Private Message explaining your acct situation before the tourney start time, I will remove the acct from the tournament. I'm sorry to have to do this, but please read the message boards of prior tourney's and you'll understand the debacle I'm trying to prevent.

It's almost here! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2016) the tourney begins!


My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year! I can't believe we're on the 10th one! Good luck to all players, I look forward to playing you across the board!

Here we go with another installment of Brf's 9th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney

Last year was a speedy tournament with Aleph and Spavacz battling out a fast Round 3 with Aleph just edging out Spav to take the win. With that behind us, we're back once again to a clean tourney slate. Noticing a trend of a 2 player finish, If this year by chance we see a final round with only 2 players, the setting will continue to be a 4 wins match so as to try and have the tournament complete in a timely fashion.

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 8 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual this is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 7 people per section with time limits set at 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney won't finish before the 2016 St Patty's tourney.

Though last year went really well, please keep in mind we've had quite the issue in years past of people using alternate accts (which messes with seeding) and not fessing up about it. Based on the results of THIS POLL, I'm going to be asking all such accounts (without an established Pente BKR) to let me know if this is a legit 'unrated' account or "other". If you fit into this category and I don't receive a Private Message explaining your acct situation before the tourney start time, I will remove the acct from the tournament. I'm sorry to have to do this, but please read the message boards of prior tourney's and you'll understand the debacle I'm trying to prevent.

It's almost here! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2015) the tourney begins!

January 2015 KOTH Pente, 2 day moves! (Sign up Now )

(NOTE: the original tournament slated to start on Jan 17 was flawed and started with only 1 game for 2 players. I had Fencer delete this tournament since it was not fixable. Let's try this one more time!)

SO, if you were signed up before you'll need to RE-sign up in this new tournament! I apologize for the hassle but something went haywire with the tournament settings and I know none of us wanted to play anything short of a complete "SET" so this is now fixed.

For the first 7 instances of this King Of The Hill tournament, I've only hosted it within the SPP fellowship. The last KOTH however I decided to open it up to the rest of BK so we could try and get all 20 slots filled up. This worked fairly well so I think I'll follow the same plan for this 9th version of the tournament.

The 9th KOTH will start on January 21 and will have a 2 day 1 hour move time limit with vacation allowed.

Please also keep in mind that up to 19 other players can sign up, this may equal a total of up to 38 games you may be playing on January 21! (MINIMUM of 14 Players required to start!) If you do not have enough open game slots for your membership level it is very likely you'll be auto-removed from the tournament at the start time.

Now is your chance to be the 2015 "King Of The Hill"! Remember though, only 20 people will be allowed to play in one BIG section. If you have any additional questions, feel free to PM me Brf message link. though you may want to sign up now just to make sure that you get one of the twenty available slots. Once all slots are gone the tourney is FULL, and you'll have to wait for next years KOTH to get in on the action!

Aside from enjoying the view from the top of the hill, whomever wins this tournament will have their name permanently added to the other fine champions listed below and on the main page in the SPP fellowship. Good luck to all players, it's going to be another fun tourney!

1st KOTH (6-08-2008) KOTH Champ - Jozso
2nd KOTH (9-26-2008) KOTH Champ - Dein

Jan 1 2014 Pente Tourney for 6month Rook!

I normally do these things just for the folks in the SPP fellowship but this time I've opened this up BK wide!

this Tourney does have a fischers clock since I want it to be over before The 8th Annual St Pats Tourney which will start in March but the time limits should be pretty doable.

5 day start time with 8 hour bonuses for each move with a max time accumulated of 10days. 5 player sections also btw!

I know someone wants this 6 month Rook prize so Good luck to everyone that signs up, and may the pente gods be on your side!

OK, since Nosovs went into retirement I have been taking on managing his Super Pente Tournament. This tournament has always been invite only and aimed towards the higher Ranked BKR players of the game. I have sent out many invites and only 4 players have accepted thus far. That being the case I decided to open up the tournament to ANY Brainking player that has a rating of 2150 or higher.

We only need 2 more players and the tournament will start! If you meet the BKR criteria please consider signing up for the tournament, we'd love to have you on board and get it going ASAP. thanks! -Brf

Brf's 6th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney

Here we are again with another yearly installment of the much anticipated "St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"

After constantly adjusting and tweaking the Tourney Settings every year to try and improve the flow and speed, last years parameter change of "10 wins match" should not have been selected. The 2011 tourney is still ongoing due to this

improper setting for a "final match with two players."

With that key learning identified, I believe we'll use the same settings as last years format but lower the 10 wins match to something more reasonable '5' seems like a decent baseline since 3 is a bit light. With this minor change,

this years St Pat's Tourney should have the best settings yet for speed while maintaining a solid challenge to all players.

This is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 7 people per section with time limits set at 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney

won't finish before the 2012 St Patty's tourney.

Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can make it through the Rounds! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2012) the tourney begins!

My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year! Good luck to all of you, I look forward to playing you across the board!

Brf's St Pat's Pente Tourney 2011! Sign Up by March 17th 2011

The tradition here at Brainking goes into it's fifth consecutive year with yet another St Patricks Day Pente Tournament.

Last years format really honed in the settings that work best for this type of high level Pente tournament...and it was over in a record 6 months! So, with just a few slight mods to the tourney parameters...I believe this years tourney is really getting dialed in and has the best settings we've ever tried.

This is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 7 people per section with time limits set at 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney won't finish before the 2012 St Patty's tourney.

So you have to ask yourself, do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can make it through the Rounds! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2011) the tourney begins!

My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year! Good luck to all of you, I look forward to playing you across the board!

St Patty's 2009!

ONLY 6 SLOTS left! and
ONLY 4 HOURS LEFT TO SIGN UP!

Keeping with tradition I've got another St Patricks Day Tournament out there but I'm changing things up a bit this time.

Only 64 people will be allowed into this years tournament since it's Single Elimination with a '2 wins to advance' match format. The Single Elimination is an experiment to make things more head to head and skill centric, hopefully taking away the random advantage a player can sometimes get over another in a section. (for example: where a player times out in just one game and gives an advantage to one of two other equal players.)

I'm keeping the same time limits as last years (2 days per move with vacation allowed) since that seemed to work rather well. Cash prizes are kind of a pain for Fencer to deal with so I've decided to set the prize as one year Brain Rook (approximately 50$ US value).

So you have to ask yourself, do you feel you have the pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can make it through the grid! On St. Patricks Day (March 17, 2009) the tourney begins! Good luck to all players, I look forward to playing you across the board!
