The tournament is open to all, and players entering for the first time will be most welcome. It is a 3 round McMahon tournament run under BGA rules.
There are prizes for the overall winner and all players on three wins. There is a separate room for game analysis, and there might be stronger players available for teaching in between games.
|10:00 - 10:40||Registration|
We are using Fischer timing for Trigantius, as part of a BGA trial. See Sensei's library for an initial introduction.
Here is a short definition:
- Your Clock time is initialised to the Basic time.
- On completion of your move, your Clock time is incremented by the Bonus time.
- If your Clock time reaches zero before you press your clock, you lose.
|Komi||7½ in even games|
|Handicap||McMahon score difference - 1 where needed|
|Concession||£8.00||in receipt of state benefit|
|First-time entrant||£5.00||first time for any over-the-board tournament|
|Novice||Free||first few games after learning the rules|
Note that there is a £5.00 surcharge for those who are not members of the BGA and a further £5.00 surcharge for late entries (those received on or after 07/03/2019).

Entry Fee: Please delete the fees that don't apply. When done, please send your email to Geoff Kaniuk. It helps if you use the subject 'Trigantius entry'. If you have any further questions please phone Geoff on +44 1223 710582.
Players already entered are found in the current entries list. If you need to make any changes to your entry, please email Geoff. Early entry is appreciated so that we know how many boards and clocks are to be supplied by the British Go association.
There will be a 13x13 novices' tournament, for anyone of grade 20-kyu or weaker, run in parallel with the main tournament.
This has an entry fee of £2, starts at 14:00, and aims for prize giving at 16:45. If there are any participants around in the morning, there will also be opportunity for teaching and friendly games.
For any further enquiries regarding the novices' tournament, please email Paul Smith.
The venue is less than ½ mile west of the bus station. Walk to John Lewis in St Andrews Street and then Downing street to Mill Lane.
The venue is about 1¼ mile north-west of the Cambridge rail station. You may catch any one of several buses from the station going towards the city (see the map below).
The nearest car park is the Grand Arcade, but it is probably best to use Park & Ride.
Refreshments and Lunch
The University Social Club will be providing light refreshments during the tournament.
The venue is very near to the University Centre (where Trigantius used to be hosted some years back), and there is a good restaurant in the Centre. The local pub is The Mill, situated just outside the venue on the bank of the river Cam.
