*144*Brf's 7th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney*144* (Pente - show rules) Back again with another yearly installment of the much anticipated "St Patricks Day Pente Tournament"
The Last two years have seen this tournament coming down to a single "final match with two players". Due to a setting of "10 wins match" and "5 wins match" for 2011 and 2012 respectively, these tournaments are still awaiting completion. I believe last years setting with "5 wins match" is decent though but I'll go ahead and bump it down one to 4 wins match so as to try and have the tournament complete a final match with two players in a timely fashion.
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 2014 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, 2013) 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!
