On October 31, we will hold the first-ever Pixel Go Tournament on the Variant Go Server programmed by seequ! This tournament is free for everybody to participate, and the top two players will each get an ngd voucher for use in their studies. Besides ngd league participations, they can also be exchanged for offline reviews of freely chosen games for €20 per game.
The tournament format will be decided closer to the tournament once we have an idea on the number of participants, but all participants will get to play at least two tournament games. Relatively quick time controls will be enforced if the feature gets implemented on the server in time. During the event, we will hold a Twitch stream commenting on the top games and explaining pixel go tactics.
For those unfamiliar with pixel go (most of you), below is a brief explanation of this interesting go variant:
All times are in Helsinki time (eet with summer time).

Public lectures on Twitch every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at 1 pm.
Jeff and Mikko stream on Twitch on Fridays at 6 pm.
