Almost 3 years after the ending of its 18th cycle, OGS Kuksu Nines Title Tournament will be revived and its 19th cycle is starting next week on August 10, 2017. Please sign up here and have fun! 97 players have signed up so far :slight_smile:

Note that from now on, Kuksu Nines will be held in Double Elimination format with random pairing, since manually holding Leagues for 9x9 games would require too much work, and the total time of Correspondence Double Elimination format on small board seems reasonable. Other Nines titles will still use the Simultaneous MacMahon formats, and Kuksu Main will remain to be in League format. In other words, Kuksu Nines would be the first title tournament to use Double Elimination format and the only one at the moment.

The 11th cycle of OGS Kuksu Main Title Tournament is starting soon in April 2018. Please sign up here before March 30, 2018. (149 players have signed up so far!)

Note: Kuksu (Main) is different from all the other titles since it’s in League format and you only need to play 1 round per cycle. To simulate the format, multiple round-robin tournaments will be set up after April 1st and you’ll need to accept the invitations from the tournament directors then to participate. For details of the grouping method, please refer to the rules, with the change that status is considered in the league tie breaker.
