More relaxing than a full-on tournament, less chaotic than a Wednesday night in Toner’s — it’s the Smithfield Special. We’ll meet in the comfortable offices of Workday in Smithfield, Dublin 7 for a Sunday of rated games, as many or as few as you like. Tune up for your next tournament, practice your innovative new fuseki, or just play for the craic.
11am–4pm, Sunday, October 22nd
Workday, 152–155 Church Street, Dublin 7
Time controls: 25 minutes + 3 x 30 seconds byo-yomi (EGF Class C)
Handicap: difference in rank minus two
We’ll make the first pairings at 11.00. After that, it’s self-paired — play whoever is available, or put your name up on the board and wait for a challenge.
Entry is gratis, but you must be a member of the Irish Go Association — the Secretary will be happy to sign up new members on the day. Tea and coffee will be provided, bring your own biscuits.
Contact Byoung-Ju to let him know that you will attend. We’ll be playing in his workplace and he will have to let you into the building, so please arrive on time.
