2008 British Open Shogi Championships

The 2008 British Open Shogi Championships will take place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th May 2008. The championships will be hosted by Trinity College as part of the 2008 Cambridge Mind Sports Olympiad.

There will be trophies for the Open Champion, for the British Champion and for the best performance by a player who is not dan-rated. An entry fee of £10 (or 12 euros) will be collected on the day, and all entry fees will be returned as prizes. The Championships will also be used to select the British team for the 4th International Shogi Festival in Tendo, Japan, in November 2008. One dan player and one non-dan player will qualify for free air travel to Japan and free hotel accommodation.

In order to allow the tournament format and the team selection method to be set in advance, no entries will be accepted after Friday 25th April. There is also a ceiling on the total number of entries at 30.
