CEGO grand prix

    Keywords: Tournament

A new European Go Grand Prix. Sponsored by the Beijing Zong Yi Yuan Cheng Culture Communication Co. Ltd. CEGO is an abbreviation of that company. Its official website is [ext] here.

The idea is to have a Grand Prix circuit - European players play in a series of tournaments throughout the year. The highest placed players in the grand prix standings then play in the Promotion Tournament. There will be several inter-related tournaments: Grand Slam Tournament, Level A Tournament, and Level B Tournament - collectively called Bonus Point Tournaments. In January 2015 a Level C Tournament was introduced.

The main tournament of the European Go Congress will always be classed as a Level A tournament. Up to 4 Grand Slam events are allowed per year. For the other categories, the following ranges are set:

  • Level C up to 8 per year
  • Level B from 4 to 6 per year
  • Level A from 2 to 3 per year

There is an additional Qualification Event. In this event, 2 qualification spots to the Grand Slam event are available, for those who have not already qualified.

Points Structure
Place Lvl C Lvl B Lvl A G.Slam
1 8 12 18 32
2 6 9 13 24
3 4 6 9 16
4 2 4 6 11
5 1 2 5 7
6 0 1 2 5
7 0 0 1 3
8 0 0 0 2

The buy-in levels to run an event are

  • Grand Slam - 10,000 Euro
  • Level A - 3,000 Euro
  • Level B - 1,000 Euro
  • Level C - 400 Euro
