Beck’s/Pembroke Inn Tournament Announcement

The IGA (Irish Go Association) is delighted to invite everybody to our very latest tournament, which is sponsored by Beck’s and by the Pembroke Bar and Restaurant.

The Beck’s-Pembroke Open Tournament will span over 5 weeks of Wednesdays, beginning on the 1st of November 2006 at 8h30PM.

The tournament is handicap-based and is opened to players of all levels. It would be ideal for there to be sixteen players in the tournament.

The tournament will follow a double knockout format, that is:

  • Winners of week one will play a knockout, while losers of week one will play a separate knockout.
  • The final will consist in the winners of each knockout playing each other.

From the above, every entrant is guaranteed to play at least week 1 and 2 of the tournament.

The entry fee is 10 Euro. Almost all of the entry money will go to prizes for winners and semifinalists.

Beck’s will provide a free keg of beer on the night of the final, while the Pembroke has kindly offered a trophy engraved with the name of the winner.

During the tournament, Olivier Deme will introduce newcomers to the game of go by playing teaching games on 9×9 boards. So if you know someone who could be interested in go, don’t forget to let him know about this!

This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in an exciting, friendly and competitive go event. We hope to see you all there on the 1st of November at 8h30PM!

Feel free to email olivier[dot]deme[at]irelandscape[dot]com to let me

know about your intention to enter the tournament!


  • Where? Pembroke Pub, Pembroke Street, Dublin 2
  • When? Wednesday 1st of November at 8h30PM sharp!

IGA Secretary.
