To our big pleasure, the Chinese Relay Go Association support an intercontinental Team Relay Go Match between Europe and China. Team Relay Go is an interesting variant of rengo. It is played on one board by two teams of eight players and a coach. The game is devided in three stages, and during each stage, two players of each team play rengo against each other. The captain may take timeouts for coaching and replace players by the remaining two substitute players.
The strongest players at the congress, including professionals, will fight against each other! Come and watch, it is really fascinating!
The European team succeeded in defeating the Chinese team!
