Invitation to Göteborg Open 2014

Post by Martin Danerud » 14 Oct 2014 17:25

Welcome to the fifteenth edition of Göteborg Open!

The tournament has attracted several international shogi players during previous years and we hope this will be the case again. We are looking forward to meet you all in Göteborg 22nd to 23rd of November. The venue is located in the central part of Göteborg, close to shops, hotels and restaurants. All participants are welcome to join a common dinner on Saturday evening.

This year we will co-arrange Göteborg Open in shogi with Göteborg Open in go! There will be a chance to see this, in Sweden, little bit bigger Asian board game being played with everyone from beginners to European top players.
