I just looked for a public Cam tournament and found there were none. Not a huge surprise as it is not the most popular game. So I looked at Chess, there are two, I checked out a few non dice chess variants, none. Halma none. Checkers none. Pente none. Open Fast Espionage none. Go 9x9 none. What does that say about the health of the site, at least as far as non dice and guessing games go? Or has the site always been dependent on just one or two people creating lots of tournaments? Or am I just on lots of peoples block lists and there are in fact hundreds?

Walter Montego:
Hi Walter,

Thanks for your interest about on our bimonthly Top 10% Faster Backgammoners!

This tournament started first time 10 years ago on monthly basis and has been going for years. In latest years, goes on bimonthly basis.

We had enough experience using Fischer Time without problem.

You can research my old messages with a click and and click to played tournaments and/or selected matches!

But, preferable method may be join and try ...

Thanks again!

Subject: Tournament time parameters.
Hi TC,

I am interested in playing in the Faster Backgammon Tournament you are organizing. I have concerns with the proposed time parameters. A 3 hour bonus means it would take 8 moves to add one day of time. A 9 day limit would never be reached in every game of Backgammon that I have played, even a game that was extraordinarily long such as forty or fifty moves long. I believe that the times are reset after the conclusion of each game in a match. If the times were carried over then maybe a 9 day limit could be reached with a 3 hour bonus. I am thinking the tournament will have many time outs or not too many entries from people that are familiar with the Fischer clock and aren't able to spend many hours per day waiting for their opponents move. Sure, I can finish a 5 point match in two hours if my opponent and I are online at the same time, and move as a fast as possible. That doesn't happen too often for me. Maybe it is more common for other people.

If you have run tournaments with these time parameters without any problems or complaints, I am impressed and please feel free to ignore this post. If this is the first time using these parameters, I think you might want to reconsider the parameters.

I am a fairly fast moving player and I know that those players that like a game to keep moving can get upset with those that drag a game out, perceived or actually doing it. If you want games to be finished in four or five days, I think the parameters you have set will work. If you would like people to join your tournaments that might only make one or two moves in a day and might miss a day from playing and yet move fairly fast, I would change the parameters in such a way to encourage fast play and yet allow people in this situation, such as myself, to play without an undue fear of timing out.

All that needs to be done is to lower the limit and increase the bonus time. Maybe a limit of 2 days 3 hours or even lower such as 1 day 3hours with a bonus of 1 day 3 hours, or times similar to this would work fine. With the limit set this low, a player would have to move every 1 or 2 days, but could get a day back with the bonus and yet would not be able to run it up to 9 days as the limit would be 1day 3 hours or 2 days 3 hours. Those players that move eight or more times a day wouldn't be affected, but the moderately fast moving players could stay in the tournament without slowing it down for the very fast players. It might take some testing of the parameters to find the pace you like, but I think this would be better and would get more people to join the tournament even if it might slow it down slightly. It would still discourage the clock using and slow players from entering the tournament in the first place.

I will copy and paste this post to send this message to you.
I have posted it here in the case some other players have concerns, suggestions, or see a flaw in my thinking. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Walter

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!
