Post by KKP » Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:58 pm

Is there a new pro in Europe in 2017 ?
If, yes Where and when will the qualification tournament be organized ?

I think that it would be nice to have a new section in the EGF website which is dedicated just to the EGF professsionals. The content could be
The Nihon Kiin have pro player cards, shouldn't the EGF have the same.
The professional tournaments can be listed (more will come in time I suppose)
News reports about pro activity
News reports on pro-qualifications
Official documents about the pro system explaining how it works
All the above should be good in terms of publicity - to bundle the communication and information into 1 space.

Maybe even this forum should have its own section for this topic :)

In 2017 we will again certify one Professional.

We will use the same tournament-system like in 2016, with 16 players and 6 rounds. The player with 5 wins will be our 6th "EGF-Professional".

We will split the event in two qualification tournaments:

1. With 16 players rounds 1-3 in Vienna (Austria), on 15/16 June 2017
2. With 8 players rounds 4-6 in Pardubice (Czechia) on 13/14 July 2017

In Vienna and in Pardubice we'll have Bonus Point Tournaments on 17/18 June and 15/16 July 2017

Well the forum is not so much used so i think it's not yet the time to expand it.

The profile pages are in planning, actually there is already someone working on it since 2 or 3 months ... It will not only be for pros also other strong european players will get a page or section with photo and short bios. Additionally we also plan to present the many european go teachers to help promote their activities.

We definitely want to improve the exposure of the european pros so each one of them will get his own page with information as you propose.

It all takes bit time but we are improving 8-)

I quote from Yean-Yves email:
The final selection of the 13 players will be announced based on your max ratings over the last 12 months ( June 2016 to May 2017).
Players should answer to the invitation mail before end of May.

The list is here.

I will set up an anouncement page this weekend.

Hi Posipaka! Welcome to the forum :)
There won't be a pro qualification in 2018. You'll have to wait until 2019!
