Until then, here are the results from 2013. Original welcome page for 2013 follows.


Welcome once again to Gothenburg and the 29th annual Gothenburg Open Go tournament. Gothenburg Open is a friendly and relaxed tournament open to all who wish to participate. It is currently one of the largest tournaments in northern Europe and we look forward to many players also this year. Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden beautifully situated by the Swedish west coast.

The tournament venue is in the very center of Gothenburg with room for many players and free lodging. We also provide mattresses for free to all participants arriving by air. There are lots of cheap flights to Gothenburg's two airports, or you can go by boat or by train.

Gothenburg Open is a five-round standard McMahon tournament (EGF class A) with a main time of one hour each and Canadian extra time (20 stones in 10 minutes). EGF rules apply. A five-round McMahon tournament means that all players will get to play five games against other players of approximately the same rank. Reduced handicap will be used for players weaker than about 10k if needed to make sure that everyone gets to play five fun and exciting games.
