More than 1,000 Go player have pre-registrated. – Anybody of ASR league there ??

Many things were going around as preperations and pre-events for the European Go Congress in St. Petersburg… as on the weekend of 28th May took place a simultan street tournament, the first and biggest of it’s kind in Europe… with lots of activities for kids. Amazing the drone video documing this uniquely even. It seems Russians love Go a lot.

Wonderful also the activities on same day in Alexandrovskiy park in St. Peterburg to teach kids in Go using a very popular cartoon. The cartoon characters – very well known in whole Russia – were teaching kids to play Go.

The first “official Go pre-game” as part of the European Go Congress started in June: the EGC-2016 promo match between Hajin Lee and Russian Go Team on KGS. More details on Sensei’s Library.

The games began at 08:00 pm South Korean time = 01:00 pm European Summer time (MEST) with 20 minutes regularly play time.

Here the video  stream on Hajin Lee’s Youtube channel documenting the first game on Saturday, 11th June:
