4th Ivo's lightning handicap marathon


Promoter and general sponsor: Ivo Švec.

Date: Traditionally alongside the Slovak championship in go at the weekend from 28 April to 29 April 2001.

Place: Erika who lies on Kojšovska ridge and is waiting for you. It is not necessary to call her to the club. It is enough to go up and in. The one who wants to find, will find. Anyone who does not find, can find another one but there no marathon will take place.

Right of attendance: Everyone who knows the rules of go. After the agreement with referee also a player with grade lower than 20 kyu can enter.

Time table: Marathon begins on Saturday 28 April 2001 at 9:00 and ends on Sunday 29 April 2001 at exactly 12:30. Games which will not be finished until this time or their results will not be written down at most 1 minute after this time will be excluded from the marathon.

Entry: Player enters the competition by playing at least one game in the marathon at given time and writes down the result into given formular.

Playing system: Every player in his free time instead of doing other pleasant activities chooses a comfortable seat and an oponent. Two players can play at most 2 games with each other. Playing time is 2x15 minutes without byoyomi. It is played with full handicap according to Ivo's rules (they differ from the Japanese ones only in the unlimited number of the handicap stones which are placed on intersections according to one's will during the playing time). In the equal game komi is 5,5 points, in handicap one it is 0,5 points.

Criteria to define ranking: All the players will be divided into 3 groups A, B, C according to the number of the played games so that there will be the first third of the players (with the highest number of the played games) in group A, there will be the first half of remaining players in group B and the rest will be in group C. The number of players in each group will be rounded up. Final ranking will be determined so that the players of group A will end up the best followed by the players of group B and the last will be the players of group C. The players in each group will be ranked according to following criteria:

  1. percentage of winning games
  2. sex (you can easily guess which one Ivo prefers)
  3. age (if it is not possible to find out with sufficient accuracy this criterion will be omitted)
  4. other (do not have to be known in advance and could include for example Ivo's liking)

Main (and only) referee and organiser: Ivo who deals with all the controversial and abnormal cases and who explains all the rules, conditions and can add some missing rules. It is possible to appeal against the decision of the main referee to the general sponsor (and give him an adequate bribe).

Entry fee: 1 000 000,- DEM (children under age of 100 have 100% discount). It is necessary to ask general sponsor if anyone wants an exception.

Prizes: They will be given in sufficient amount. At least 10 prizes are guaranteed.

Accomodation and meal: Everyone finds whoever and whatever he wants. A sponsor who would give chicks to eat has not been found yet.

Mish of the marathon: The competition will not take place due to its low popularity. However, mishes can report themselves individually to the organiser.
