4th annual H.O.T. tourney
Posted: Nov 16, 2005, 1:00 PM

The fourth annual Heart of Texas (H.O.T.) Pente tournament in Brady, TX has been scheduled for January 7, 2006. Registration will begin at Noon and play will start at 1:00 p.m. Entry fee is $1 (yes, the tourney is mostly for fun and getting to visit with fellow pente players) and winner take all. The format will be round-robin. Everyone will play each other one two-game match. One point for each victory. The player with the most points at the end wins. In case of a tie, a playoff will determine the winner. If there are too many players, we will create brackets and have the bracket winners play each other for the championship. Tourney rules apply. Last year, we had enough intermediate/beginner players to have a beginner and intermediate bracket with the players playing standard rules. Last year the winner of the intermediate bracket won a Pente board set and that is the plan again for this year.

Among the luminaries expected to attend are two-time defending champion Jumpin721 who will once again be trying to win the prestigious homebrewed beer that goes to the winner; Partica 3rd place last year and recent Bodo Konze Memorial Tourney winner (where she proved that girls really can play Pente J); 2-time runner-up homebrew/wow-u (me) who will be attempting to finally win my own tournament; Laconic-2002 champ, 2003 3rd place, winner intermediate division in 2004; ctally127-3rd in 2002 and 4th in 2003 and 2004; kayce; trazoc; easywin and many others. Possibilities include pyloric valve/cicerolove, bigrick, woggie and hopefully many others as well.

And just in case we have any foreign guests (anyone who rides an airplane to TX) we have guests coming from San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas and will do our best to get you a ride to and from the airport.

The past couple of years have been a blast (you can see the pictures on jumpin721's website http://geocities.com/jimfoers@swbell.net/) with about 20 players in attendance each year. With any luck, we should get more players this year and cordially invite anyone who wants to come. Anyone wishing to attend can contact me at the following e-mail address: crsc@centex.net
Hope to see ya there!

Rex (aka homebrew/wow-u)
