OK we're down to 4 days left before start time. We're at 54 players signed up right now. We'll continue to get more stragglers right up until March 17 at 12am I'm sure.
Though if you haven't clicked on this cool link St Pat's 2014 yet, then you're quickly running out of time.

My thanks to everyone that has already signed up to join in on the fun! I hope to see you all in the tourney & good luck to all entrants!

Brf's 9th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney (2015!)
Posted: Mar 10, 2015 5:21 PM

Here we go with another yearly installment of the Brf's 9th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney for 2015!

Last year was a speedy tournament with Aleph and Spavacz battling out a fast Round 3 with Aleph just edging out Spav to take the win. With that behind us, we're back once again to a clean tourney slate. Noticing a trend of a 2 player finish, If this year by chance we see a final round with only 2 players, the setting will continue to be a 4 wins match so as to try and have the tournament complete in a timely fashion.

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 8 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual 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 2016 St Patty's tourney.

Though last year went really well, please keep in mind we've had quite the issue in years past of people using alternate accts (which messes with seeding) and not fessing up about it. Based on the results of THIS POLL, I'm going to be asking all such accounts (without an established Pente BKR) to let me know if this is a legit 'unrated' account or "other". If you fit into this category and I don't receive a Private Message explaining your acct situation before the tourney start time, I will remove the acct from the tournament. I'm sorry to have to do this, but please read the message boards of prior tourney's and you'll understand the debacle I'm trying to prevent.

The tournament will start in less than a week! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2015) the tourney begins!

I'd love to get some more folks from Pente.org signing up this year, I know lupulo, be_water, myself, & probably xtraclassy, are going to join in so if you have an acct at Brainking please consider joining in on the fun with us. If you don't have an acct they're free and easy to set up too!

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!

I realize many of the pente.org folks play also at brainking and I always try and update this thread with the new St Pat's info for the year...so here it is for those that may have missed it! (only 8 days left to sign up!)

I'm going now on a decade of hosting this challenging pente tournament here at Brainking! please join in for another yearly installment of Brfs St Patricks Day Pente Tournament

Continuing the trend of a 2 player finish, last years tournament is close to wrapping up with Spavacz and be_water battling it out in the final round. ...the 4 wins match will still be the setting on a final round (if a 2 player - Round 3 happens again). This setting helps to ensure the tournament completes in a timely fashion.

This years St Pat's Tourney has the best settings based on 9 years of tweaks for speed while ensuring a solid challenge to all players.

As usual this is a prize tournament with 1 year Brain Rook awarded to the winner. The section size has been set at 6 people per section, so pawns will need to have 10 open game slots at start time (or risk being auto-removed)! Time limits are set at 2 days per move with vacation allowed.....anything more and the tourney won't finish before the 2017 St Patty's tourney.

Please keep in mind we've had quite the issue in years past of people using alternate accts (which messes with seeding) and not fessing up about it. Based on the results of THIS POLL, I'm going to be asking all such accounts (without an established Pente BKR) to let me know if this is a legit 'unrated' account or "other". If you fit into this category and I don't receive a Private Message explaining your acct situation before the tourney start time, I will remove the acct from the tournament. I'm sorry to have to do this, but please read the message boards of prior tourney's and you'll understand the debacle I'm trying to prevent.

It's almost here! Do you feel you have the Pente luck of the Irish? well sign up and see how far you can battle your way through the grids! On St.Patricks Day (March 17, 2016) the tourney begins!


My thanks to all of you who continue to sign up for this tournament every year! I can't believe we're on the 10th one! Good luck to all players, I look forward to playing you across the board!

Not really advertising this one heavy at Brainking, just inside the SPP fellowship. Also figured I'd toss an update out here for any of the folks who still play here, and at Brainking.

So if anyone is interested in signing up for this years pente tournament,
here's the direct link: Brfs 12th Annual St. Pat's Pente Tourney

The 2018 Tournament specs are:
Maximum number of players per section: 6
Time control (?): 1 day 9 hours per move, standard vacation
Player rating: 100 <= BKR <= 2500

Last time to sign up: 17. March 2018, 14:45:00 (PST)

Hope to see you across the board!

12th Annual St Pats Pente Tournament there is only 2 more days to sign up!

if you're interested there are 15 players on the roster right now, I've set it to only start when we hit 16 or greater. Also there is a 6 month brain rook membership (for BK) for the winner.

Hope to see any last minute stragglers make it over, Not sure if I will do this again next year so this may be the last one of these since Brainking seems to be dying a slow death and most players (including myself) tend to play here instead.

regardless, I hope to see you over the board for what may be the last St. Pats Pente Tourney!
