Edit 25 September: there is now a tournament page with results on European Go Federation’s website.

This problem is from a classic tsumego collection by Hon’inbō Shūsai called 死活妙機 or Shikatsu Myōki. This name is notoriously difficult to translate into English: while shikatsu means life-and-death, myōki is a Buddhist term referring to excellent adhering to Buddhist teachings. Presumably this is meant in the sense that ‘if you manage to solve all these problems, your reading will …

We offer €40 value (either a half-option subscription or two observer subscriptions) in exchange for a written tournament report …
