July 2017 KGS bot tournament (Round 7 in progress)

This is the July 2017 KGS Computer Go Tournament.

It is open only to Go-playing programs, or 'bots'. Even for bots, there are some restrictions on entry.

It uses 19×19 boards, and Chinese rules, with komi of 7½

The time setting is 29 minutes each plus Canadian overtime of 10 moves in 30 seconds. This time setting is intended to ensure that a game finishes within the period assigned to the round, while allowing a little time to respond to opponents who continue to play after the game is decided.

To enter, please read and follow the instructions at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/how/index.html

The rules are given at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/rules.html

The schedule will suit Asians and Europeans. I hope that Americans and others will also compete, leaving their bots connected and running overnight. KGS Computer Go Tournaments have a variety of schedules, to suit all timezones.

Rules

Swiss style, Simultaneous Schedule.

Prizes

The two highest-placed entrants will be invited to play (using KGS) in the "Science and Computer Go" event at the European Go Congress, on Wednesday August 2nd, from 11:00 to 16:00 UTC.
