By Damir Medak | Tournament | 18.12.2022 8:25| Views: 455
The Season Four (2022) of the SEYGO Tour has been a series of live and online events. We included EYGC in Prague and the event SEYGO_at_EGC has been very successful prelude to the 64th European Go Congress. Online events have been held on the Online Go Server and the OGS group will remain the source of information about SEYGO project.

In 2023, we want to organize "live" events only. Since we want to announce the events starting soon as early as possible, we welcome all organizers who want to held a SEYGO events in 2023, especially in autumn 2023.

Therefore we announce four SEYGO events with venues and dates (more info to come):
The conditions of a SEYGO tournament are well-defined:
  • an international youth tournament with participants from at least three countries,
  • two age groups (U12 born on 1st January 2011 or later and U18 born on 1st January 2005 and not later than 31st December 2010) with at least 4 players in each age groups,
  • "SEYGO system" - five-rounds tournaments with Knock-Outs in each age group starting in the most appropriate moment (games with the large difference in rating should be avoided)
  • participation fee per player dependent on the rating (20 EUR for dan players, 15 EUR for single-digit-kyu, 10 EUR for double-digit-kyu)
  • the major part of the fees (at least 75%), and possible sponsorships, should be distributed as EGF/SEYGO Vouchers to the best players (3 top scorers in each age group), by transferring the amount awarded to the EGF account
