The Open European Championship is the largest tournament of the European Go Congress. Everybody who has registered can participate, also players from outside Europe!
Last year, more than 600 players from nearly 50 countries participated in this tournament, among them 200 Dan players and also a few professionals. The winner was Kim Youngsam, South Korea, 7 Dan.
The participants of the European Championship join this tournament latest in the second week. (All games of the European Championship besides semifinals and the final also count for the Open Championship.)
The tournament is EGF ranked and there are nice prizes to win, for the top players, but also for everybody with a at least 7 wins.
