Irish Correspondence Championship

Posted by ian on November 12th, 2013

The 2015 Irish Correspondence Championship is now in progress.  The official start date is the 1st of January 2015, but keen players can get stuck into their games earlier.

The IGA committee have agreed to prizes to the winners this year. The winner of the Open will receive a Go voucher for 20 euros and the winner of the Intermediate will receive a Go voucher for 15 euros. Note – if I cannot find a shop which will redeem these online, it will just be cash instead of a voucher.

The results from 2014 are here.

System: League format will be used, with the number of leagues depending on the number of entrants. You will play 1 game against each person in your league.
Rules: Japanese Rules, 6.5 komi, all games to be played on even. Time Limits should be set to Fischer Time 45 days main time (and maximum time) with + 12 hours per move. Clocks run on weekends. IGA membership requested.
Servers: The default server is Dragon Go Server, but we can also use Online Go Server
Notes:In correspondence play, you should feel free to refer to various sources of information on the game to help decide your play. You should not feel free to use a computer program to decide your play. :)
