CEGO grand prix
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 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.
|Place||Lvl C||Lvl B||Lvl A||G.Slam|
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
