[Repost from original r/baduk thread]

Hi all,

Since the success of the 2018 German Go Championship commentaries, it’s been great to hear from you both online and IRL :slight_smile: We peaked at 8.1k concurrent viewers and 570k+ overall views, and got to introduce the game to many newcomers.

But now there’s more ! Our next event will be the 2018 Rennes Confucius Cup on EGF’s Twitch channel, live from the Brittany Confucius Insitute in Rennes, France. This top-class tournament has 7 rounds over 4 days of competition, and total prize pool is close to 3.000 Euros! You can find out more information here.

Again, thanks to our friends at Twitch, the following schedule will be partially promoted on the Twitch front page :

*all times in CET; actual start times might slightly vary

Day 1 (Nov 1) Round 1: 13.00-16.00 Round 2: 16.00-19.00
Day 2 (Nov 2) Round 3: 09.00-13.00 Round 4: 15.00-19.00

The broadcasts will be hosted by Stephen “xhu98” Hu (EGF 4d), who will be doing translations for our main commentator, Fan Weijing 3p from China. Top registered players include Seongjin Kim 8d, Youngsam Kim 8d, and six other EGF 5d+!

Again, Go streamers and volunteers always welcome! Please reach out to us if you are interested; we REALLY appreciate your contributions to the broadcasts :heart:

See you in the Twitch chat!

Nice catch, corrected in the original post - thanks! :smiley:


#4

@xhu98 is it possible to have the commentary videos re-uploaded?

We are not really planning to release the VODs, as switching back and forth between Chinese/English is really hard for viewers to follow :confused: We’ll do for the other tournaments that are in English only :smiley:
