Registration for e-Go Congress Tournaments

Monday June 28, 2021

This year, the e-Go Congress has enhanced the registration process to streamline the process for everyone!
In addition to a bunch of features you can’t see (but trust us, you and the Tournament Directors will appreciate them!), the site developers have updated the process to make a one-stop shop for you.  To register:

  • Go to and click “Start Here.”
  • Upon creating  your account, you will receive a confirmation email (this lets us know you’re not a bot).  Follow the directions to validate yourself as a human.
  • After you confirm you’re human, you can log into your account.
  • To add players, click “add attendee” inside your account.
  • You can now automatically connect your account to your AGA ID by using the nifty search feature on the first registration screen.
  • The e-Go Congress is free!  This means that your registration is not so much about choosing what options you want to pay for (like, do you want to share a bunk bed with a stranger, or have a luxurious hotel room to yourself?), but rather about signing up for the events in which you want to participate.
  • Use the congress registration form to register for all of the tournaments in which you plan to play.  This is the only way to register (but you can definitely come back and change your choices).  You should also put in your OGS/KGS/Pandanet ID so that TDs can use your ID to facilitate pairings.
  • Pair Go: Pair Go registration is a little special, since obviously we need to know who your partner is too.  All you have to do is click on the Pair Go Registration form (and know your partner’s information, if you already have one), and you’re good!

If you’ve already registered, you can sign in to your account at any time to check or change what you selected.  Still have questions?  Feel free to reach out to our registrar, Emil Meng, at, or Congress Director Steve Colburn at
