New Zealand Go Players


We have received our invitation to "send" a representative to the 16th Korea Prime Minister Cup (KPMC), which again will be an online only tournament. The games are planned to be held between August 2 and August 29. If you are a new Zealand citizen and would like to be our representative in this tournament please let me know. If several people apply, the person highest on our WAGC points table will be chosen.
Last year Chahine Koleejan was our representative and finished a very respectable 28th out of the 74 entrants. This year there may be more than just the tournament games - the invitation says "This year, we are planning to create some new events that could trigger the participants’ interests."
