Face-to-Face Go Events Coming Back to Europe
After the Coronavirus pandemic started, all European go tournaments went online.
This summer, face-to-face go events are finally starting to come back. Probably that is the result of quarantine restrictions being lifted in many countries thanks to large-scale vaccinations.
A number of traditional summer go camps took place in various countries: France, Poland, Croatia, and Hungary. Besides, an international go tournament took place in Pardubice, Czechia on July 17–18: Moyo Open 2021, Bonus Point Level C tournament. A total of 49 participants from eight countries participated in it, with Lukas Podpera 7d emerging victorious.
Another international competition is scheduled to take place from July 30 until August 1 in Hague, The Netherlands: Dutch Open, Bonus Point Level B tournament. At the moment 44 participants from 12 countries have pre-registered.
