Rengo Tournament

Rengo Tournament

The Rengo Tournament has a long tradition at the Go Congress. It uses full-handicap according to the average rank of the players (rounded down) but we incentivise efforts to create multicultural multi-generation teams of varying strength adjusting the handicap stones as follows:

  • one extra handicap stone for the team with more diverse nationalities
  • one for the team with the highest difference of age within the team
  • one for the highest difference of rank within the team.

In each game this can make up for up to three extra handicap stones.

Rules: The tournament uses a Swiss system and is played within five rounds. If more than 32 teams participate, an extra final round will be set up to decide the winner. The time limit is 30 minutes plus 3x20 seconds byoyomi.



Please note: As we move closer to the beginning of the congress, we might add sections including further details, a schedule, pictures, a results page, etc. The information currently on display may also be subject to change, so please check back later to double-check this event.
