Coronavirus Cup

April 4 @ 8:00 am - April 5 @ 6:00 pm

The Coronavirus Cup will be held online on the OGS go server. Games will be played at live speed, with draws announced via the QGS Discord, although it is open to all Go players in Australia.

Registration closes at 9:30am on the 4th of April.

After draws are announced, results of games must be reported by 15 minutes before the beginning of the next round for that division. Failure to do so may result in the game being declared a mutual forfeit, at the discretion of the tournament director. The nature of a tournament like this makes timing particularly important, so please do what you can to make things easier and smoother for your fellow players!
