The 13th Pandanet Go European Team Championship (PGETC) brings together 36 teams, split into leagues from A to D. In each league, teams play out an online round-robin, ending in the spring next year. The top four teams of the A league qualify for the face-to-face final, traditionally held at the European Go Congress in July. For more information, visit the web page of the PGETC.
The first round of leagues A and B took place on October 18th. The results of the first round in league A are:
Ukraine v. Serbia: 4-0
France v. Austria: 2-2
Czechia v. Netherlands: 3-1
Poland v. Israel: 1-3
Romania v. Hungary: 2-2
The draw between the teams of Austria and France was unexpected since the latter is one of the traditional favourites of the tournament. Below you can find a record of the game between Viktor Lin 6d (Austria) and Dai Junfu 8d (France).
