Rules & Description

The competition was organised by Christoph Nikolaus and took place from 31 August to 1 September 2007 at the University of Vienna, Room 204 of the Faculty of Mathematics.

Qualifying took place over two days. The tournament started Friday at 1300 with a 1 hour Intermediate session. The player with the 5 fastest scores automatically qualified for the main competition (Roman). This was followed by a 2 hour Expert session. The player with the 5 fastest Expert games automatically qualfied (Tommy). The 3 remaining players with the fastest 5 Intermediate and 5 Expert score totals also qualified (Christoph, Gergely, Robert). A Nonosweeper session took place in the evening.

Early Saturday morning players still trying to qualify were given 1 hour to complete 5 Intermediate and 5 Expert, with the fastest 3 players getting to compete in the Playoff (Tobias, Florian, Andreas). This was followed by more Nonosweeper.

The main competition started at noon and used a Time Trial format where players competed to finish 15 Beginner, 6 Intermediate and 2 Expert games in the shortest amount of time. The 8 fastest players from the qualifying sessions took part in four Quarter Finals. The winner of each pair progressed to the Semis (Roman, Gergely, Tommy, Christoph) and then the Final (Gergely, Christoph). The Final was a best of 3 attempts to solve the 23 boards and was won by Christoph 2-1. Roman won the playoff for 3rd place.

More Info

The version used was ViennaSweeper.

You can read the original announcement for the tournament, as well as detailed results at Christoph's website.

Stephan did not qualify for the Playoff even though his best 5&5 was 6th overall. Because he missed automatic qualification on Friday, he had to play again in the Saturday session. This session ignored all previous results, and he failed to complete enough Expert games and finished 4th.

For the purposes of tournament rankings on this site, the 3 hours of sweeping during the Friday qualifying session count as a side event and participating players are ranked 1st to 10th. The 'Last Chance' session on Saturday is not considered an event, but scores made in this session are counted towards the overall Tournament Ranking.
