SK Gas Cup

    Keywords: Tournament

The SK Gas Cup (Korean: SK가스배) "features two leagues with 5 players each. The winners of both leagues play a best of three match to decide the winner of the tournament. Time limit is 3 hours each." (source: Gobase)

Previous name was New Stars Best Ten. As the name implies, the tournament is for new professionals. The tournament was discontinued from 2009.

According to Wikipedia, the competitors had to be under 25 and below 5 dan. In comparison, the Shinjin O was originally U-30, U-7p and in 2006 also become U-25 (remaining U-7p). The winner's prize of the SK Gas Cup was 10,000,000 won ($8,500).
