In its current season, the European Professional Go League evolved into the Transatlantic Professional Go League (TPGL) with two American players participating: Ryan Li 3p and Calvin Sun 1p. Besides, two amateurs got a chance to test their skills against the professionals: Oscar Vazquez 6d and Remi Campagnie 6d.
Due to a larger number of participants, the tournament system was changed: the players were divided into two groups, with one American professional, one amateur, and three European professionals in each.
A round-robin was played out in each group, followed by play-offs for the two top finishers in each group.
According to the results of the group stage, here is the pairing for the semi-finals:
- Ilya Shikshin 4p vs Tanguy Le Calve 1p
- Ryan Li 3p vs Artem Kachanovskyi 2p
