Sixth KGS Computer Go Tournament - Formal division (Tie; winners: GNU, gonzoBot, viking5)

This is the formal division of the sixth KGS Computer Go Tournament.

It is open only to Go-playing programs, known as "bots"; and even for bots, there are restrictions on entry to this formal division. There is also an open division.

To enter, please read and follow the instructions at

The rules are given at Pay particular attention to the requirements for entry to this formal division. If you cannot meet these requirements, you may still be able to enter the open division.

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

This tournament is currently scheduled as a Round-Robin. If it has more than eight entrants, it will be re-scheduled as a seven-round Swiss, so as to finish within a reasonable time.


Round Robin, Simultaneous Schedule.


There is no prize.
