The fourth stage of the first season of the SEYGO Tour 2019 took place in Vienna, Austria. The tournament was held on August 17-18, 2019, as the highlight of the Vienna Go Camp, attended by a group of young Chinese players combined by a group of strong European players. The organizers (Viktor Lin, Li Ting and Marcel Gruenauer) provided an excellent atmosphere in and around the Go7 club. There were only three players in the group U20. Elian Grigoriu, 5d from Romaina, won all the games of the first day and had to leave securing the first place. Yaroslav Malko, 1k from Ukraine, was the second, and Mirta Medak, 2d from Croatia was the third. The group U16 had only one player, exposing the weakness fo the system: it is quite strange to get the title of the winner, maximum number of SEYGO points and a valuable SEYGO Voucher without the need to win a single game. On the other hand, the group U12 is always extremely competitive. In the final game, Olesia Malko, 3k from Ukraine, edged a victory against Dragos Boldeanu, 2d from Romania, practically securing the top position in overall Tour 2019.  Read more...
