The Lightning Tournament at the 2017 and 2018 Go Congresses were a lot of fun – a time to relax and play some fun games.  There was a lot of positive feedback from all concerned so we are doing another one this year.

The 3rd Australian Lightning Tournament (ATL) will be held on Friday 14th Feb starting at 5:00pm.  The ATL will be a handicap tournament with all players in a single division with at least four rounds in a progressive Swiss draw.   Players will have 6 minutes main time plus a single 10 second byo-yomi period.

Registration is free for anybody playing at the Congress and closes at 5:00pm – the first round starting at 5:10pm; subsequent rounds will start as soon as drawn.

To guarantee your place please email the Lightning Tournament Director, Horatio Davis, with your name and rank – remember, it’s the quick and the dead!

All decisions and judgements for the lightning tournament are made by the Lightning Tournament Director, those decisions are final.
