s-pente tournament on PBEM
Posted: Oct 28, 2001, 2:54 AM

Hi,

I did not start a k-pente tournament
on PBEM this year, so I will start a different
variant now. s-pente is pente with opening rules as
suggested
by Oleg Stepanov. The opening rules were modified
because it seems that it is too easy for the first player
to win, as was seen in last year's pente final
round.

Important -- the rules have been modified since the
previous posting about s-pente. Now you can swap after the
3rd, 4th, and 5th moves.

Players are initially
referred to as tentative Ohs and tentative Eks. Swaps
may be made after moves 3, 4, and 5.

Move#1.
Ohs first move of the game is automatically made to
the center K10.
Move#2. Tentative Eks has to make
the second move into the central zone 3x3 (J-L,
9-11)
Move#3. Tentative Ohs has to make the third move
into the central zone 5x5 (H-M, 8-12)
Move#4a.
Tentative Eks may swap sides after the 3rd move.

Move#4b. Eks makes an unrestricted move.
Moves 5 and 6
are similar to the 4th move -- after each of the 4th
and 5th stones have been played, the next player has
the option to swap
or to play the next stone.
There may be 0, 1, 2, or 3 swaps made in any game. Note
that after your opponent makes a swap, you may not
immediately swap again, you must play a stone.

The
tournament will begin Dec 1st, email me to signup:

I will be starting an S-pente tournement on PBeM very soon (Dec 1). S-pente
allows swaps after moves 3, 4, and 5. Email me ASAP if interested -- we need
more people!

I would like to play.

I would have to
find the rules again--I've never played before. Have
questions such as does offense (and, or defense) have the
choice of swapping...or does it go back and
forth?
