I have registered for the GO__WORLD_CHAMPIONSHIP__000012


However, in the started tournament (,

there are only 9 players despite that 12 players have registered.

Sasa Radojcic, Angelo Piantadosi and I are somehow excluded. Does anyone know the reason?

Hello Jing,

The reason is you entered the waiting list after that the tournament started (deadline was november 1st)... You may have played it in case of a replacement but it seems there will be no spot this time, sorry about that.

I see & thanks for the explanation.

By the way is there a specific reason why only 9 players are allowed in the rule? I mean, although it might be due to there are not as many go players as chess players on this server, this rule seems to further prevent more potential Go players from playing here ...

Regular tournaments are in a way part of the championship, increasing rating allows players to qualify for this tournament. The other reason is that 8 games is not too heavy, and generally the 9th player has a much lower rating. If there were only 3 or 4 ranks between top seed and last seed, then the process would need to be reworked, I guess.
