*144*Brf's 5th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney*144* (Pente - show rules) 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 6months! 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!
