Details

The tournament was organised by Thomas Kolar and took place at ETH Zürich on 10 September 2011. The competition started at 13:15 and each player had 3 hours to finish at least 5 Intermediate and 5 Expert scores. This was the 2nd tournament to use the Scoreganizer client written by Tommy, but the 1st to allow players to compete from home. Players downloaded the program and registered for the tournament in advance. When the tournament started, Viennasweeper automatically opened and videos of finished games were uploaded to the website until the competition ended. In total, 9 players competed in person at Zurich and another 7 players competed from their homes.

There was a Side Event before the main tournament. According to the website, "We will play a team blind championship from 12:45 to 12:55. This means that teams of two people will compete [...] The player playing the game must be blindfolded at all points in the game, and the other player may only give verbal instructions (ie, may not physically interfere in any way) to their teammate. Both players may talk freely." Fritz and Robert won with 54s, Arsen and Edu made 55s, and Tommy and Stefan Huber made 109s.

Trophies were awarded to the top 3 players, and medals were given to all players at the tournament. Fritz won the title of "Minesweeper World Champion" and Kamil won the title of "Online Minesweeper World Champion". In the evening the players went bowling.

More Info

The tournament used the minesweeper version Viennasweeper.

This was the first combined "in person" and online tournament. Results are online at the Scoreganizer website.

Fritz has written a review of the tournament.

One new player (Huber) joined the tournament world ranking, and the other 6 players who finished enough games all improved their tournament rankings with a total of 10 new records.

Fritz set a new tournament Expert record of 41.66, beating the 41.68 made by Roman Gammel in 2007. As a result of these scores, Fritz became the new tournament #1.
