Daily speed swap Pente tournaments?
Posted: Jul 4, 2020, 8:39 PM

Vint.ee will make a daily auto Pente tourney if I propose a time for them to take place. There are usually daily swap gomoku tournaments and renju tournaments happening there between the east coast times of 7 AM and 12 noon, so probably within that time frame would attract more Estonian players. I think they used to have them at 5 AM Eastern time, which is obviously not ideal for US players. Anyone here have thoughts of when they might like to have a daily speed swap (after 3 moves) Pente tournament?

I went ahead and suggested a 2 PM Eastern US start time, since I didn't get any feedback on better times.
It'll probably be 6 rounds of 3/5 swap to start out unless there are large crowds of players, which I don't expect initially.
The first daily tournament starts tomorrow, AKA 8/7/2020.

I sure hope not, that'd be a pretty large target to be wearing around
Today's tourney starts in about 20 minutes; not sure if I can make this one...

Congrats to today's winner, Arcoroc (AKA pente_gon). Tough games!
ETA: they recently added a new twist to swap gomoku and Pente - a second swap option where you can place two more stones on the board instead of choosing a side and then the original proposer has to choose which side to play.

Great playing, pente_gon (arcoroc)! Going to have to step up my game just for you...

Karlw.... Where are you? Always looking for tough, interesting games... as much as you love the D, bring your game to the table.

Don't let a little edge troll scare you.

I've got enough on my plate currently; maybe after the tourney. Meanwhile, you should be focusing all your energies on preparing your lines. Something tells me you've never played in a tournament with six other top players...

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Do edge trolls hide under the board egdes and demand stone tolls from players as entrance fees?
