The AGA, in partnership with KBA and Tygem, has started to develop a professional system. There will be a series of preliminaries each year, leading up to a qualifier tournament held at the US Go Congress. The players will be eligible to compete in several major Korean tournaments (Samsung Cup, LG Cup, BCcard Cup, Olleh KT Cup and Myung-in), in addition to those events where AGA players may participate.
- Competitors have to be U.S. or Canadian citizens (proof required) and AGA members. They can sign up for the AGA when they register for the tournament. In future years, competitors will need to show that they have been members of the AGA for at least a year.
