The Qatari Tourism Authority and the Mind Sports Academy will co-host the 4th Mind Sports Championship this August in 2017.05.02_qatar-mindsportsDoha, Qatar, writes Michael Fodera. In addition to go, the event features scrabble, chess, and E-sports.

The go portion of the event has a similar structure to the US and European Go Congresses, including a week-long main tournament from 9a to 1p each day, with a break in the middle of the week for a 3-round Diehard Tournament. Pro workshops, lectures, and simultaneous games are held in the afternoons, with evening activities featuring a 9×9, 13×13, blitz, and pair go tournaments. An Awards Ceremony will be held at the end of the tournament, featuring over $40,000 in cash and prizes. Click here for a full schedule and registration details.
“If you’re a diehard go player, a fan of a variety of Mind Sports, or even just looking for a new travel destination, this event has you covered,” says Fodera. For questions about the event, contact Fodera at
