Since the success of the 2018 German Go Championship commentaries, it’s been great to hear from you both online and IRL 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.
