The Kido Cup in Hamburg, Germany is coming again this year. Instead of the "Hamburger monkey jump" there will be a typical Korean style tournament! It's this weekend from 11th to 13th June 2011.
The sponsor Kido Industrial will sponser over 10.000€ prize money!!! What a huge amount for an European tournament.
Some European top-players will appear like Cristian Pop (7d), Ondrej Silt (6d), Mero Csaba (7d) or Pal Balogh (6d).
There are also over 5 professional players from Korea including Yeon Yeongseon 8p, Ko Juyeon 8p, Kim Youngsam 8p, Kim Sungrae 8p and Kwon Kapyong 7p. Mr. Kwon has a very famous Baduk school in Korea, he produced many pros like Yi Sedol, Choi Cheolhan or Yeon Yeongseon :)
That's NOT everything guys. A BadukTV-team will be there and WBaduk will send a representative to transmit the games on WBaduk. I guess it is the first time that a European tournament will be broadcast in Korea, very special :) Also there will be a broadcast on KGS.
If you are not registrated yet, please come to visit and play on the tournament.
