Viime vuonna Pavol Lisy ja Ali Jabarin kävivät pistämässä kiinalaisia ns. dunkkuun. Tänä vuonna he haluavat lisää mokomaa. Max. 30 3d tai vahvempaa lähtee. -- Jesse Savo

Dear Go friends,

The Silk Road Tournament (Qingling Mountains Cup) is being held again in Xi'an from 8 to 13 October. As you might know, Pavol Lisy 1p and Ali Jabarin 1p came 1st and 2nd last year (and they won 60.000 RMB and 30.000 RMB respectively).

It was a happy incident not only for our European players, but also for Chinese Go fans and media. Therefore the organisers would very like to see even more European faces at this year's tournament. 30 seats are reserved for European players (3 dan and stronger).

You can find more information in the attached document. Please pass them to the top players of your country.

Don't miss the deadline for registration 20 August. Please ask me any questions you might have about the tournament.

Best regards, Viktor Lin
