UA-85178738-1 Amsterdam International Go Tournament 2017 | European Go Federation bonus points tournament (level B)


The 46th Amsterdam International Go Tournament
a European Go Federation bonus points tournament (level B) - Thursday, May 25 – Sunday, May 28, 2017

Traditionally, this is one of the longest running and biggest tournaments in Europe. This event is held over 4 days round Ascension Day with a unique 90 minutes per person per game.
Since the EGF started the European Grand Prix cycle in 2014 the Amsterdam International Go Tournament participated. Winners can earn bonus points that lead to a classification of top European players.

Due to circumstances Catalin Taranu (5P) cannot be present at the Amsterdam Tournament; we regret this very much. We did our best to replace him. The person who will assist you in high level go matters is a former European Champion and insei Rob van Zeijst (7d). He can teach you a lot about go.
