At the time of the creation of the 81Dojo, it consisted of  the three Major Tournaments (81Ou, CosmOu and Aeon Saint) and four Minor Tournaments, we competed for seven Championship Titles.

Unfortunately, we are about to come to an end of this year, although one Title of 3rd Aeon Saint was revived in January - March 2017.

Although there are many other tournaments now, there is no tournament for all the official big names, which are the face of 81dojo and are symbolic.

So this time, as a festival to decorate the last of the year, I tried to plan the dream match, I report the situation to the present now.

*The official big name is the 81Dojo top page of the "Big4 and Top10", and the following 12 players fall. (title abbreviation/ Max R/ Entry player ☆ Mark)
⇒pikoty27☆R2650[2017-11]/neokdr【Aeon Saint】★R2460[2017-07]/ranshama★R2425[2017-04]/pooh3★R2349[2017-06]

Thank you very much for agreeing to the purpose of the tournament and applying immediately.

The present details of entries are as followings.
● Big4 + Top10 = 2 applicants ⇒ approved
 ○ pikoty27 R2650[2017-11] Big4, Ranking #1
 ○ icecream R2437[2017-07] Ranking #7
● Max R2000 and over = 5 applicants ⇒ approved
 ○DemonikOu R2156[2016-11] 3rd Aeon Saint [81Dojo] Tournament organizer
 ○shindouc R2149[2017-10] 9th World Masters Tournament finalist
 ○raidensiratsuyu R2104[2017-07] many 81user Tournament organizer GOLD medalist
 ○yamanohito R2078[2017-05] 1st~13th World Masters Tournament organizer
 ○jaws R2034[2017-11]
● Max R1500 ~ 1999 = 0 
● Max R   0 ~ 1499 = 3 applicants  ⇒ approved
 ○spinoza1313 R1272[2017-10]
 ○Toretto R1092[2017-10]
 ○shiba_ken R0899[2017-08]

I will make an effort to be able to favor the player and the Spectator in the future in each situation.

So, judging the current situation, the tournament is planning to change the contents as follows.

1. Reorganize by class and change to a new purpose (* Toretto's ideas are devised and embodied.)
 class A: Four MaxR 2000 and over players challenge two big names!
 class B: Three MaxR 1499 short players challenge tomycar!

2. class A summary; 7 players play games, 2 losers eliminated irregular Single method

2-1 Five MaxR 2000 and over players challenge two big names, and if all two defeats, 5th round is the final round of the championship decision and the standings.
2-2 If one of two big names is defeated, the previous four matches will combine the final match with the Championship decision in the 5th round.
2-3 If five MaxR 2000 and over players win two big names, it will be the deciding match for the champions, and by the previous four matches of the remaining five players, I will combine the final round of the championship decision and the standings in the 5th round.
《Scheduled Game Date》(*In case of a combination change) 
November 26, opening
 ⇒1st round; p-s/i-D/y-j [untill December 3]
  ⇒2nd round; p-j/i-r/D-y [untill December 10]
   ⇒3rd round; p-y/i-j/s-r [untill December 17]
    ⇒Semi-final match; p-D/i-s/r-j [untill December 24]
     ⇒Final match; p-i/D-s/r-y [untill December 31]

3. class A summary; 3 players two Even games + one "KOMAOTI" HC game with tomycar Irregular League match 
(It would be helpful if the class A is willing to accept the challenge of B-class players, but it is optional)

《Scheduled Game Date》
 1st round; sp-sh Even R/To-tomy 4-HC NR
  ⇒2nd round; To-sh Even R/sp-tomy 4-HC NR
   ⇒3rd round; sp-To Even R/sh-tomy 6-HC NR

This will be a major change from the original plan, but it will also be a consensus on the current status of 81Dojo, and the first tournament is held.

Let's enjoy the R30+ 60 game together because I try the organizer to enjoy shogi & the tournament more than anything!

As a festival that will become a last of the 2017year, we have set up a dream-like tournament, we will report the situation to the present as promised.

Thank you very much for agreeing to the purpose of the tournament and applying immediately.

○ The present details of entries are as followings:
  ● Big4 + Top10 = 2 applicants ⇒ approved
  ● Max R2000 and over = 3 applicants ⇒ approved
  ● Max R1500 ~ 1999 = 0 
  ● Max R   0 ~ 1499 = 2 applicants  ⇒ suspended
  ● The new-comer players [not rated] = 4 applicants ⇒ Declined
*About the four new-comer players, I have confirmed that, the Rated 100 games not played even after this entry , so already declined with a message.
I am very sorry, but it is also the first tournament by my own organization, it shall be up to the decision of the organizer.

It seems necessary to put some alteration to the plan as it likes to become an event of all eight players even if I join seven people if the situation remains like this. 
I want to make sure that at least the two big names are able to play all five games.

After confirming the status of entry until November 13, we will announce the participants next time.

By the opinions of the members of 81Dojo, I would like to manage out this tournament to be something like a cornerstone of the future 81Dojo.

I would appreciate your help and opinions.(If you have any requests and /or opinions , I will respond promptly for improvement)

My best regards.
