This year the European Women’s Go Championship (EWGC) took place online on 4–5 September. The tournament brought together 30 participants from eleven European countries.
After six rounds of intense struggle, two players remained with only one defeat: Dina Burdakova 5d and Virzhinia Shalneva 3d, both of them representatives of Russia. Dina was ahead on the first tie-breaker – the sum of opponents’ scores (SOS), so she claimed the champion’s title. Last year’s winner, Natalia Kovaleva 5d, finished third, losing only to her fellow countrywomen – the winner and the runner-up.
For Dina Burdakova it was the second victory in the EWGC. Her first triumph was in 2014 in Kazan, Russia.
