Self-Arranged Gold or MPoint Tournaments

go9dan's self-arranged Gold Tournaments are available around the clock. Self-Arranged Gold Tournaments are knock-out tournaments (where losers are "knocked out" and only winners keep playing) that require Gold to participate. Prizes are awarded in Gold. Players may choose 2, 4, or 8 player tournaments when registering.

Anyone with enough Gold is allowed to create a tournament and/or participate in any of the tournaments currently registering. The Gold awarded to the winners and the Gold required to participate in tournaments will vary. Winner(s) will be awarded Gold less a service fee of 12%, 7%, or 5% depending upon their membership type. In the event window, click on Registering for details.

All of this also applies to MPoint tournaments except the fees and prizes will be in MPoints instead of Gold and your wins and losses won’t affect your rating.

Time limits can be from 1 to 60 minutes basic time with up to three 20 or 30 second readings. Handicapping will be automatic based on rank or rating.
