September KGS Plus Tournament, American/European daytime, 2 kyu and lower handicap division (Winner: Verda)

Welcome to the September KGS Plus tournament! It will be a 6-rounds event held on two days. Enjoy!

All levels (users without rank or 30k to 9d ranked users) are welcome to the open division, all the games will be even.

The handicap division is limited to 2k and lower rated users who are regular players on KGS: they must enter with their strongest account, they must have played fair games for at least 6 weeks, and they must have in their user information at least 30 rated games played before August 31th (for instance: having played the 30 games in the last week won't be accepted). Also people who have been previsouly disqualified from a KGS tourney are not allowed. People who do not fullfill those conditions but register anyway may be disqualified anytime (before the tournament starts, during a game, during a round, or even once all the rounds are over). A disqualified player will have no prize and won't be allowed to enter upcoming tourneys.

30 non-KGS Plus members will be allowed in the open divisions. KGS Plus members are always welcome.

IMPORTANT: you are allowed to attend only one division (out of the 3 ones) and are expected to use your strongest account on KGS. Contact glue if your KGS Plus account is not your strongest account.
