KGS Iron Man Tournament
Kiseido Go Server will be holding its 2nd Iron Man Tournament from November 21st to 25th. I found out about it on frankiii's blog. He and Zero9090 (14k) have already signed-up and they're just the kind of determined players that will probably make it into the top ten.
I won't be joining them for lack of time. There's even a slim chance that our family might be down in Southern California for a portion of the Thanksgiving holidays.
The prizes for this tournament are modest. In my humble opinion, most folks will probably be participating more for the challenge and, perhaps, the distinction of having a nice crown next to their KGS login ID.
Prizes for the 2nd KGS Iron Man Tournament
(Taken from the official page)
- The winner of each division will receive a $15 gift certificate from Kiseido.
- The 5 players with the most wins (no matter how many games they played) will each get 1 month of free KGS Plus. There are only 5 of these prizes total for the tournament, not 5 per division.
- The 10 players who were in the most games will each get 1 week of KGS Plus. Again, 10 will be handed out over the whole tournament. Players who won prizes 1 or 2 will not be counted here.
