6th Ivo's lightning handicap marathon


Promoter and general sponsor: Ivo Švec.

Date: Traditionally alongside the Slovak championship in go at the weekend from 2 May to 4 May 2003.

Place: Zlatá Idka. The one who does not find it will maybe find something even better.

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

Time table: Marathon begins on Friday 2 May 2003 at 18:00 and ends on Sunday 4 May 2003 at exactly 14:00. 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 6,5 points, in handicap one it is 0,5 points. Everyone writes down on his line the number of his opponent and sign + (won) or – (lost) and in his own interest he checks whether the same was made by opponent. All the results which are incomplete or written in wrong way will be excluded from the competition!

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 (especially 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: 666 666,- CZK (children under age of 100 have 100% discount). It is necessary to ask general sponsor if anyone wants an exception.

Prizes: Sweet rewards are prepared for the best 9 players. If the winner is not present at the time when the results are announced, the prize shall be fully forfeit to the other places.

Accomodation and meal: Everyone sleeps wherever and with whoever he wants and he does not have to eat during that.

Mish of the marathon: Due to low interest in this competition it will not take place this year. The only mish so far together with some other adequate candidates will please us during the marathon with their presence, so do not hesitate, there will certainly be a lot to see.
