Welcome to the March 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 x 30 sec byo yomi periods for each player). The Open divisions are open to all ranks, games are played even regardless of the ratings. Enjoy!
