2019 British Shogi Championship - more details.

As previously announced, this tournament will take place next weekend on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November.

The overall Open Championship is open to all. There will also be a British Closed Champion title for entrants who qualify as UK nationals. This will be decided by pairing the qualified players against each other in a knockout format during the first three rounds.

All entrants will play in each round, unless there are an odd number of players. If there are an odd number of players then the bye will go to the lowest ranked player who hasn't already had a bye. Nobody will get more than one bye.

We will plan to start play at 10.30 on Saturday, and players should aim to arrive before this in order to allow time for the first round pairings to be made. If players are delayed, they should contact Steven Cain to warn him so that they can still be included in the first round draw.
