KGS Meijin Qualifier January 2012 (Winner: smallbird)

Announcing the KGS Meijin!

KGS is pleased to announce that starting in 2012, we will crown one player as the KGS Meijin every year. Every month, January through November, there will be a tournament on KGS. Sometimes it will be open signup, sometimes there will be restrictions. In each tournament, one or more people will qualify as Meijin contenders. In December there will be one final tournament, where all contenders compete, the winner is becoming the KGS Meijin!

You can enter as many qualifiers as you like. Each month the qualifiers will be at a different time and will have a different setup.
