The Fernando Arrabal Tournament of the Absurd, often shortened to Arrabal, was an extremely difficult tournament written for the fall of 2013 by Jerry Vinokurov, with assistance from Miriam Nussbaum and Cody Voight. Its name is often used to refer to the upper end of difficulty and to sets which aspire to that mark.
The tournament was played in two instances on November 23, 2013: one at Carnegie Mellon one online over Skype. The in-person site was marked by a notably virtuosic performance by Will Nediger, who scored more than twice as many points as any other player while teaming up with the second place scorer, Seth Teitler.
