The first edition of Corona Cup took place in spring 2020 and had 361 participants – exactly the same as the number of intersections on the go board.
The second edition was held on the KGS and lasted more than one month, from November 2 till December 15. The participants played one game a week, and each pair could arrange the date and time of the game by themselves – a very flexible schedule.
This time the tournament attracted even bigger number of players: 400 participants from 34 different countries.
Kim Youngsam 7d from Germany repeated his success, winning the Corona Cup once again. The runner-up was Artem Kachanovskyp 2p (Ukraine), while the bronze medal went to Ilya Shikshin 3p (Russia).
