    Keywords: Tournament

(幽玄杯精鋭リーグ戦) Yugen Cup was a Japanese professional tournament held from 2008 to 2011. Games were played online using the Yugen no Ma server. Some top inseis were allowed to participate.

Time control was 2 hours each plus 1 min byoyomi in the first two editions. 30 second per move plus 10 x 1min (NHK Cup system) in the 3rd and 4th editions.

The winner's purse was mere JPY 100,000; it was more of a promotion for the server than a serious professional tournament.
