The tournament was organised by Fritz Löhr. The event took place at an Internet Cafe at 25 Dachauer Strasse on October 9th and 10th. The main event took place on Saturday and some players also competed in a Nonosweeper tournament on Sunday.
The original plan was to meet at 13:00 and start the tournament at 14:00, playing for 3 hours. Scores were going to be automatically uploaded and ranked on the internet, thanks to a program written by Christoph used at previous tournaments. Unfortunately, the Internet Cafe had a limited number of computers using several operating systems. This caused problems - Christoph and Tommy spent several hours trying get the program to work to no avail. In the end, the tournament started at 16:18 and players competed for 2.5 hours without knowing the progress of other players. Awards were presented at Bavaria Bowling later in the evening. The top 3 players received trophies, and everyone was given a certificate and medal.
Several players competed in a Nonosweeper tournament the next day, which was won by Stephan. Results are on his website.
The tournament used the minesweeper version Viennasweeper.
