Watching EGC 2017

I Logo for European Go Congress and sponsor have been watching the 2017 European Go Championship tournament games, on KGS, and the EGF live stream of Board 1 on Twitch.

Helen’s new site, sed, computer straitjacket

Software for Tournament Direction

Over the years, I have used three programs to direct Go tournaments. I’ve also done it once with just a spreadsheet program; and with paper or index cards a couple times, which is perfectly adequate for a small tournament. If there are more than 15 or 20 players, then having the computer do the work via specialized tournament software can be a big time-saver.
