Between October 16 and December 9, the 18th Ibero American Go Internet Tournament was played on the Pandanet Go Server. This tournament has been recently relaunched with the aid of the Chilean Go Federation who did all the organisation work this year.
The tournament was played over eight rounds under a MacMahon system, and it gathered 97 players from 15 countries across Latin America. The champion turned out to be Fernando Aguilar from Argentina, who has dominated the scene since the start of this event back in 1998. You may look at the final standings here.
This event is a long-standing icon of the Ibero American go community, considering that it has gathered over a hundred players in most of its editions. For a long time it was organised by Jordi Gene of Spain, but as of 2014 the organisation has been taken up by different actors within Latin America.
We hope that this tournament keeps on going and that it will bring even more players together this year!
