Traditionally, the weekend in between the two congress weeks is the time for a separate five rounds McMahon tournament. Everybody who has registered can participate, also players from outside Europe! This tournament is the second biggest tournament at the EGC.

Last year, more than 450 players participated in this tournament, among them more than 100 Dan players and also a few professionals. The winner was Kim Youngsam, South Korea, 7 Dan.

The tournament is EGF ranked and there are nice prizes to win, for the top players, but also for everybody with a good tournament performance (details will be announced).
