September KGS Plus Tournament, American/European daytime, 3 kyu and lower handicap division (Round 5 in progress)

Welcome to the September KGS Plus tournament! It's been a long time since we had a Swiss tournament. It will be a 5-rounds event held on two days. Two rounds the first day for European/American Divisions, beware, it will start earlier on day 2! Three rounds the first day for the Asian/European Divisions. Enjoy!

All levels (users without rank or 30k to 9d ranked users) are welcome to the open division, all the games will be even. The handicap divisions are restricted to 3k and lower rated users, the games will be played with the default handicap. 30 non-KGS Plus members per division will be allowed to the open divisions. KGS Plus members are always welcome.

IMPORTANT: you are allowed to attend once and only one division (out of the 4 ones) and are expected to use your strongest account on KGS. Contact glue if your KGS Plus account is not your strongest account.
