FICGS Go world championship is a 2 stages tournament. First stage is a single round-robin tournament, involving the 9 highest rated players (10 kyu and higher) who entered the waiting list. The winner of this tournament is the challenger for FICGS world champion title. In case of equality, the player with the strongest tournament entry rating (TER) is qualified for the next stage. If tournament entry ratings are equal, ratings when the next stage begins will be taken in account. If current world champion defends his title, he will play a 5 games match (3 games with Black, 2 games with White) against his challenger.
All games are played in 30 days + 1 day / move. Komi is 7.5 points. Rules for Go are chinese rules, as defined by the Chinese Weiqi Association. Both players must play until one resign, both players pass (then resign or call referee) or game is adjudicated. It's up to the players to discuss the score at the end of the game, so calling referee should be exceptional. Scoring method is area scoring with chinese counting. Positional superko rule applies, it's impossible to repeat a previous board position ('incorrect move' message would be displayed).
Please note that you can pass, just entering 'pass', but one player has to resign or call referee to end the game.
