World Amateur Go Championship
The World Amateur Go Championship ("WAGC") has been an annual event since 1979 (except for 2003 omitted because of the SARS epidemic). It allows one player per country/territory. China has produced the winner in 16 of the first 28 years, Japan 8, Korea 3, Hong Kong (still considered a separate territory) 1. The most prolific winner is Imamura Fumiaki of Japan, winner in 1980, 1987, and 1991.
