How the Tournament worksAll games will be played live in a private tournament room on the internet. The two players will be joined by an independent adjudicator who will act as scorer and throw the sticks. Matches in the first round will be the best of 9 (i.e., the first player to 5), later rounds the best of 15, 19 and 25 in the final. At the end of the match, the winner will proceed to the next round and the Tournament Adminstrator will be informed of the result by the adjudicator. The Administrator will then put together the draw for the next round and the winners will be contacted.
All results will be published on this site.
There is no entry fee and the winner will receive no renumeration. But the lucky winner will be able, of course, to call him or herself the World Internet Senet Champion!
Full rules can be sent by e-mail to any interested party.
