Smithfield Special

More relaxing than a full-on tournament, less chaotic than a Wednesday night in Toner’s — the Smithfield Special is a day of self-paired, rated games in the comfortable offices of Workday in Smithfield, Dublin 7. Play as many (or as few) games as you like: tune up for your next tournament, practice your innovative new fuseki, or just come for the joy of battle (and pizza).

11am–4pm, Monday, 5th February
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 list 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, coffee and pizza will be provided.

Contact Byoung-Ju to let him know that you will attend. We’ll be playing in his workplace and he will need to register you in advance so don’t leave it too late.

Provisional Dates for 2024:
Sunday, 26th May
