“Pandanet has announced changes to the 8th Student Igo Oza Championship,” reports Tournament Coordinator Philip Waldron. Rather than asking national go associations like the AGA to run qualifier tournaments, events will now be played on the Internet Go Server and coordinated directly from Japan. Two players will now be selected from the North, South and Central Americas to compete against a field of sixteen in Japan in March. Players interested in competing for an invitation to the international championship tournament should consult the information webpage. Registration for the qualifiers closes October 25.
