Third KGS Computer Go Tournament - Open division (Winner: GNU)

This is the open division of the third KGS Computer Go Tournament.

It is open only to Go-playing programs, known as "bots".

To enter, please read and follow the instructions at

The rules are given at

The schedule should be convenient for Europeans and Americans. I hope that Asians will also compete, leaving their bots connected and running overnight. KGS Computer Go Tournaments will have a variety of schedules, to suit all timezones. The time limits are chosen to simplify the schedule, by causing rounds to begin hourly. They begin ten minutes after the rounds of the formal division.


Swiss style, Simultaneous Schedule.


There is no prize.
