Tournaments

International schoolchildren gomoku online olympiade,1-st tournament
Estonia, Tallinn, December 2020 (12-12 - 12-12), Gomoku - swap2 rule

14.November - trial tournament without age groups
12. December - 1. tournament
30. January 2021 - 2nd tournament
13. March - 3rd tournament
10. April - 4th tournament

I suggest following regulation:
We will have 3 age groups (as we have different school system in different countries it can cause mess to use school stages):
1) Players born 2002-2005 - gr. A
2) Players born 2006-2009 - gr. B
3) Players born 2010 and later - gr. C
3 best results of 4 tournaments will be counted. About points system from each tournament I will confirm with Marten Meikop (vint.ee owner), but probably it will be following:
1) place in tournament - 100 points; 2nd - 95; 3rd - 92; places 4th-93. 90...1.
All groups will play gomoku swap 2
Time control will be 3 minutes+ 2 seconds Fisher, 11 rounds in Swiss in all groups will be used
Tie-break criteria for one tournament:
In case of same number of points, the following criteria will be used:
1) Full Truncated Buchholz - Truncated solkoff: The sum of scores of all opponents minus the lowest score; if this is equal the sum of all opponents minus the 2 lowest scores .... Etc.
In case of equal coefficients player with better vint.ee rating will get better place.

Tie-break criteria totally: 1. sum of given points from 3 best tournaments 2. Played tournaments number 3. Sum of places of tournaments
If all criteria are same, then players will share place, except top three places. If players will share top three places, extra game(s) will be used. The time for extra game(s) will be decided by The Judges Council.
We will have also schools competition. 5 best results (in each gr. separately) will be counted
