2010 British Shogi Championships

The 2010 British Open Shogi Championships will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th November 2010. The championships will be in Broadstairs. There will be six rounds, three on Saturday and three on Sunday, and everybody will play in each round. There will be no entry fee and no cash prizes this year, but there will be trophies for the British Open Champion, the British Champion and the British kyu-class Champion.

The first game will begin at 11 am on Saturday 27th, to give everybody time to get to Broadstairs. On Sunday we can be flexible, but we expect to start by 9 am so that we can finish early enough to have a blitz tournament after the main tournament.

Provided that enough players have an official grade, games will be graded by FESA (the Federation of European Shogi Associations).

Entries can be made by email or by post. Please contact David Faldon for more details, or comment on this blog post

Everyone is very welcome, regardless of strength or experience.

The nearest rail station is Charing Cross. Embankment, Covent Garden and Leicester Square underground stations are close, but it's best to check which lines are running with Transport for London
