Welcome to the April KGS Plus tournament! This is a tournament with slow time controls, 5 rounds played on two days with two hours per round (40 minutes plus 5 byo yomi periods for each player). The open divisions are open to all ranks, the kyu ones are limited to players at most 5k. Enjoy!

50 non-KGS Plus members per division will be allowed to the open divisions, none to the handicap ones. KGS Plus members are always welcome.
