This is the main event of the Congress, usually drawing over 300 participants from beginning 20-something kyu players to 6-dan and above. The tournament will have six rounds, one round per day. 90 minutes for each player makes for serious Go playing. Nearly all games are even, and you will be paired against players very close to your strength.
