I will be running a prize BG Tourney for members of my board, the prize will be a minimum of a 1 year Brainrook membership, with a possible second prize being added to. It will be an invite only Tourney, and you need to post in the relevent thread on the board to get an invite.
(you are talking about 4iar?) I am not sure, and I am not good enough to be in that bracket but some top rated guys & gals have stated that against lower ranked players ( and some all the time ), they prefer to go second!
Ask someone like McStack on GT, he is a truly awesome player, and know far more than I do!
Yes it does make a difference. Games like 5 in a line, Reversi, 4iar(?) & chess can all be shown to have a bias toward the person going first (although some really good 4iar players prefer going 2nd) at the end of the day, the better player should win, but with a match between two even players, it could make a difference.
